    i named it the joker for 3 reasons.......first of all the color ( green and purple) for the joker from Bat Man played by Jack Nicholson...my father also played the role of the joker for a business party. This is a small memory that i have from him before he pasted away. He was also was a plant/flower lover, he pasted when i was 5 but it must be in the blood..lol , lastly because the difference in stance from each flower...granted this is its first blooms and who knows if they will be more alike next spike, but its a trickster............soooo..yes...i think its a very well suited name and tons of dignity with it........and lastly "why So Serious??" :P

    we are all brothers and sisters, todays antics pushes us apart........we talk a lot about genetics and evolution with orchids......as beings on this earth, humans should start thinking the same, using our minds not to destroy and build, but to come to a higher loving consciousness of each other and the earth(universe) as a whole.......

    Thanks for all your compliments ......its interesting what plants can bring out in people emotionally...have a good day all
