    Ok, I've written the tag, just philippinensis. If this one will grow longer and more twistier petals next blooming, I'll be very happy. This time I scowled every time I look at the flowers because the dorsal sepals remained hunched over the pouch!!

    Tanya, Gilda, I reckon you both very lucky gals indeed... but of course I'm a bit biased as this is my favourite orchid of all time!!!

    Both are beautiful!

    When I flowered mine, I used Jason's trick about tilting the pot so that the dorsal opens a little more and it work... so next time... and seeing as this species is a fairly easy one to grow, and everyone should have one or at least ten, you can try that trick too.

    cheers and happy growing.
