    That is fantastic. I don't think I've ever seen that color red in a phalaenopsis. Keep it up!

    That's gorgeous. What kind of flower counts do you typically get on a spike with this?

    Normally, I get six to eight flower open on a spike. This year it is putting up a second spike. We'll see. This is only the second flowering of this plant. Thanks for the great comments.
