    Beautiful - very striking, crisp markings, and a great gloss. The recurving petals would throw the average AOS judge for a curve, so to speak, since ordinarily they consider that a flaw - part of the insanity of the judging process in and of itself.

    These orchids could be potted in a well-drained mix of fir-bark and perlite. You should water them regularly in every four or five days and keep the humidity level high. Flower stems can droop; if the available light is not enough.
