    The first dark Black Jack is awesome, with that substance I am sure it must have stuck around for 20 weeks, but I am skeptical about the second one, I try to be far away from orchids with streaks on them, most of the times they are an indication of virus, sometimes it could just be temperature fluctuations or breeding.

    Thanks
    The lady who sold it to me last year didn'i knew what it was
    She gave itto me at half price because it was allready in bloom for so long she said the flowers are going to fade soon
    It turned out she was wrong
    Lucky me
