    Default Bllra. Marfitch "Howads Dream"

    I made a little picture journey for my Bllra. Marfitch "Howads Dream". It took from 12.1.12 to 1.31.13 for the bloom to develop fully and open up. This gives new orchid members an idea how long it takes for the spike and bloom to develop. Hope you like it.

    Very nice. I keep resisting the urge to get one of these but the more I see it the harder it is not to get one.

    Wow, the beautiful blooms are definitely worth the wait. Are they hard to grow?
