    Default Doritis champorensis var. alba

    I won two of these (albas) at our orchid society picnic last summer. I had always wanted to try them but just never got around to buying one. I was so pleased with the way the two white ones preformed for me this summer that a few weeks ago I bought a pink variety. It is a deeper pink than what shows in the pictures.

    Very pretty. I find it very difficult to grow - killed two already........but then I've lost count of the phals that I've killed.

    They are very long spikes, how big are the plants? I have the same orchid which I bought last October but the plant is somewhat compact. Mine just put out a spike, can't wait for my first bloom on it. Can you post a picture of the plants?
