    Thanks for the compliment. However, this plant seems the have a hard time blooming and only one flower at a time. Sorry Connie, half a dozen probably will take me 6 years

    Cheers

    nice flower!
    Can you post a total shot?

    May I add: This var. occurs on the Mentawai islands, islands southwest off Sumatra. Here a Tsunami destroyed the coast some days ago.

    The difference to the "normal" violacea is the much longer inflorence, to ca. 50cm (Phalaenopsis, A Monograph, Eric A. Christenson).
