    Beautiful!!! If it has gigantea in its parentage then there may be a chance for more flowers, but if it has amboinensis too then There won't be many flowers.

    No, there's no amboinensis in it and I read a post somewhere that a plant at a show in Houston had 15 flowers on it so I await with anticipation!

    Wow!! Those are stunning! I like how the color of the lip matches the center-most portion of the petals.

    Thank you. For some reason the flower on the left has decided to wilt. It isn't pollinated because the pollen is still as you see it in the pic. That's OK because the second spike is growing very well indeed.
