    Wow! That is so pretty! I have a terrible time with similar crosses, I think they don't care for my low humidity and occasional lack of watering. Its a bummer because I really like them.

    That is a beauty, Nina!

    I live in low humidity and I get regular blooms, so Carol, I'm guessing the spotty watering is the issue. How is the lighting?

    That is a species I could get into, will have to look. Beautiful Nina! Do you know who might be selling this, if you do send me a private message as you can not list vendors in this forum.

    Looks like your set-up is nicely done would love to see more pictures of your orchid area.

    Agree this is a nice orchid, thank you for all the responses. This is the third time this plant has bloomed for me and previously I staked the bloom spikes upright but decided this time to let the plant bloom without staking. Do like the way it looks. Of course I grow all my orchids outside so had room for the size of this plant in bloom. I did have to move several Vanda baskets off this hanging pole to accommodate the space required for cascading bloom spikes and being in a clay pot it's heavy. Not dividing this plant, want it to keep growing, I like specimen orchids. Probably a throwback to my botanical garden days. I can understand why this one was HCC awarded, beautiful flowers. JDT I'll try to locate some pics of my orchid growing areas. I grow orchids all over my garden; on vertical trellises, fences, sitting on benches, hanging on poles, chains, and arbors.

    I was a bad boy.

    My grocery store sent me a $2 off Floral coupon. My local store just got a shipment. So I got a $10 phal, with 4 spikes on it for $8. She's a beauty!








    And there was an Onc Pacific Sunrise 'Hakalau' that wouldn't let me leave it there. So I am 1 up on you!

    I'm sure my local orchid nursery will have these before too long. I'll snag one when they do.
