    A lovely hybrid that I recently picked up at Carter and Holmes. I have to give credit for the blooms to them.

    Very pretty! I have one of these that has not done so well. How do you plan to grow yours?

    I just repotted mine from a bark mix to semihydro. Is yours a climber too? The base of each new pbulb on mine (the 'Izumi' clone) is about an inch higher than the last. Gotta luv dem climbers....

    I love this orchid, just wish it smelled a little better. When mine blooms, it smells like grass clippings -- not exactly offensive, but definitely not a bouquet of roses.

    Yes, I think it's time for an intervention! At least I've talked Guy into another set of shelves!!

    Matthew, open house was great. Hate you missed it... Maybe spring?

    Thanks for reminding me what mine looks like. It was in bloom a year ago... It's got lots of new growth, but no where near spiking. I wonder if it ever will again?
