    Cool Paph spiceriarum x Olympic Halo

    This is the first rebloom of my Paph spiceriarum x Olympic Halo which was the 2nd Paph I purchased once the addiction took hold back in November 2013.

    It is my orchid that is closest to being a specimen plant. It has too many growths to count with 2 blooms right now. There are at least 2 more buds forming. One has started to emerge from the jumble on its spike. The other is still down in the crown of the growth it is growing from.

    This is the one that kspalding loves and recently found.

    It is still a bit green right now but will yellow up as the flowers mature.

    I love the color and it sounds like a regular bloomer...always a good thing! You also have a good eye for taking pictures.
