    Exclamation Too close to the microwave??

    Got this plant in low bud as a 'deal' from a vendor. NoID on it. Guess now I know why he was willing to part with a double spike multi growth plant so cheaply!

    LOL! Sometimes you do get what you pay for!

    What's the handsome Brassidium behind it? Looks close to a Kenneth Bivin, but not quite.

    This is usually normal for complex crosses (well, not to this degree!)... second flowering is always better!

    Let's hope - this is a multi-floral, both spikes have second buds...

    Poor baby. A face only a mother could love. Makes you just want to cuddle him! As my husband says about mutts (non pedigree dogs), "He don't care, he's happy."
    Uhhh.... it that the 'little something extra?'
