    Very nice, I like the angle of the photograph too.

    and curiously, they do look a little like Darth Vader.... I have definintely been in front of the computer too long.

    Thank you for the comments. I've had this one for a while now. I like the darker paphs but will admit to having an "albino" green and white too.
    May the Force be with you

    Yours is very similar but mine does not have warts, yet! Like yours, the dorsals do stay down and I have been tempted to tie the flower higher up the stem so that they are more visible.
    The one plant I wanted to buy from the grower (local) had four spikes! It was awhile ago so there were no flowers just small spikes. He would have sold it to me but wanted to see if he could get an award at an orchid show with it. Can't blame him there, would help his buisness selling this variety.

    Here's a closer in look, albeit looking upward.
