    I forgot to add: I'll have 1 more to take a photo of hopefully soon. My Monarch Orchid has produced 2 stems. It tried to already produce one flower but it dried up before opening. (My fault I wasn't monitoring the moisture of the moss, and it got too dry for too long. (The leaves were wrinkling as well as the bulb at the base))

    Those are awesome phals!!! Great set of photos too. BTW what is the Monarch Orchid ......... an Oncidium, a Psychopsis or a Phalaenopsis ? As all your pictures are of phals I presume that this could refer to,perhaps, a large white phal ? I remember there was a very famous large phal of the 1960s named Cast Iron Monarch that was used extensively in hybridising.
