    Default Brassidium Gilded Urchin 'Halo'

    I'm not sure if this is the 'Halo' or 'Ontario' variety because we copied the tag on another that looked the same but a tad darker. I assume the two at the store were the same.
    So far, this is the largest orchid I have. I've always liked these so I'm glad I found one locally! I think I'm most excited about the fully unopened second spike.

    I noticed this bit on the plant when I bought but now I'm wondering what it is..there's nothing else like it on the plant. A new pbulb? Just some new leaves? In any case, the plant seems to be liking her new home in my home with a spot grow light

    I can't take much credit yet for the happiness of this plant Betty, but I hope it keeps on growing for me! In other news, all my other plants at the office are doing quite well and all pushing out new growth of some kind!
