    Default Rossioglossum 'Rawdon Jester'

    This guy just opened his first flower for me! It's not fully open and has a little unfurling and flattening out to do, but I'll keep y'all updated! 7 buds in total This is probably my favorite orchid I have! I've tried with three difference plants before, and they all died...however, they were all sent to me with NO roots by the same vendor, who I wish I was able to warn people about it. This one seems to be doing good (new vendor), but it was sent in spike so I can't really take credit for the blooms unfortunately!

    IS the vendor from Michigan by chance? I avoid the MI vendor I am talking about.

    That's a pretty good flower count for a smallish plant. Some have been awarded with fewer flowers. How big are they?

    Nice that you finally got a good quality healthy plant after a few disappointments.
