    Cool Psychopsis Mariposa - Alba in bloom

    One of my orchid vendors locally usually only sells phals. I go by to visit and occasionally come home with one of her famously huge phals or one of the tiny phals to give as a gift. This trip she asked if I had a butterfly orchid yet. Her husband had bought a tray of Psychopsis at one of their suppliers and she offered me the pick of the tray. I chose one I felt was very healthy looking and had 3 full spikes with another small one just beginning. So far it seems to be doing okay...and the first bud has opened. I've seen larger flowers...but I really like the coloring of this one. And I kind of lucked out...the rest in the tray were regular, this was the only alba.

    It is in a 4 inch pot. The leaves range from slightly over 7 inches, to the largest being 10 inches.

    What a perfect bloom. On the wish list for quite sometime, but finding a nice one has been difficult. Your plant Connie certainly looks robust. Love it! AL
