    Smile Aliceara Sunday Best 'Muffin' HCC/AOS

    At this point, I usually don't post my new, in-bloom purchases. I like to now wait till I am responsible for the blooms. But in certain cases, I do like to show them. This is one such.

    I saw this last Monday at my local orchid nursery and passed it up as I was full up. No space. Then on Tuesday, a flu-like cold hit me, only my 3rd cold in the last 10 years. My first day starting to feel better was yesterday. Of course the other 'sickness' kicked in. I decided to make some room for it. And I went and bought it.

    The flower picture was taken when I first saw the plant at the nursery. By the time I bought it, the flowers were not worth imaging. But that is ok. It was still available there! I thought it was in a 3.5 inch square pot but when I picked it up, I found it in a 5 inch round pot. It has 7 new growths amongst the mature pbs. And many of the pbs look un-bloomed. This could explode in spikes in the not too distant future. And fresh blooms will look cool on it!

    What sealed the deal for me was the green at the tip of the lip.

    I am lucky to be in a location I have lots of choices. Also, it doesn't hurt that I now live the orchid lifestyle.

    Harvey,
    The green lip tips would have done it for me also.

    I like you are in an area where there are too many choices, so much so I am in the process of building a another space. Battery in drill died and I forgot to charge the 2nd battery so here I am checking in while I wait.

    But Harvey, of course you have PLENTY of room for more orchids - you took a picture and I don't see a single orchid in the background!! You'll be fine, just fine.... lol It is, of course, gorgeous, that green is very cool.

    I'm still holding off, I have several Phals spiking to keep my interest and a fear that, if I get too many, I won't be able to take good enough care of them.
