    @ Joyce ~ Did you get a name on it? It does look exactly the same!
    @Connie~ Lol hmmmm now you make me wonder! lol Just kiddin. There is always at least 4 or 5 of them but normally they are past bloom or just dropping off the spike. I hit the Jackpot with this one! I make it a point to go by this big box grocery store every other day or so. Wouldn't want to miss any that need a drink of water, a little weakly weekly, warm sunshine, or a loving appreciative human!

    Toni, no. I bought it from a favorite garden center and they never have names on their orchids. All of the phals I've bought from them have been vigorous growers This is a new favorite, but then again I say that with all of the new purchases!
