    Finally, I'm learning and remembering some facts about orchids - I actually knew that was a wild-collected bellina just by viewing the elongated and curvier shape - which is, by the way, very very beautiful!

    Thanks Maura , I'll try to remember the description ' curvier' . Sounds much sexier.
