    WOWZA!!!!

    I'd heard that pulchras keiki freely... mine is making its first keiki right now! (Honestly I was a tad disappointed; I'd thought it was making a spike), but now that I'm seeing your amazing mass of gorgeousness, I'm not so bummed about the keiki any more!) Any tips on getting my pulchra to flower and not just make babies? I've heard rumors that this type tends to keiki more than it tends to flower!

    Also, I've seen the pulchra listed as both Phalaenopsis lueddemanniana var. pulchra and also just Phalaenopsis pulchra. Can anyone clarify which is the correct label? I'm curious because I'm looking to do some breeding with my pulchra, and I'm not sure how I'd name whatever cross would result... would it have to be listed as a lueddemanniana cross, or does pulchra get a category all to itself?

    Anyway, sorry to slightly derail the thread here... I will return to the regularly scheduled and much preferred outpouring of praise for your A-MA-ZING plant!! Great growing, and beautiful photography!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

    WAY TO GO!!!
