    I really like this one. The colors are so pretty and they are such reliable bloomers. Yours is lovely.

    Beautiful color, Martha, and so many blooms! I love it. Sorry I wasn't able to get by when we were in NE, but, as usual, too many family obligations and no time for orchids whatsoever.

    Not the colors I'd have expected with a 'Halloween' nom de plume, but very nice and very floriferous.

    I saw one of these at my grocery store last week. I liked it! The flowers were fading so I didn't buy it. Patience!

    I went back today mainly to find that orchid and found that same Wils Aloha Sparks 'Halloween' headed to the bargain bin for 3 bucks (still in a cart in the floral dept, not back in the day old section yet). So I saved it! That was part of the plan when I noticed it was fading to begin with.

    This one seemed to have sparkling gold effect to it or so it seemed when I saw it.

    I hope to post pics of it in flower some day!

    The one I saved has almost flat pseudo bulbs. Is that correct or it this in trouble?
