    Default Aliceara Marfitch "Howard's Dream"

    I ordered this orchid--and a few others, because I have zero self-control--online and it arrived in bud. Most of the flowers opened up, but some are a little crooked (I think this is because the plant was relocated from stable sunlight while the buds were forming?). Anyway, I don't mind because I've always wanted this orchid! I love love love the color and the pattern is amazing.

    Very pretty. I have one that I received last summer that was in spike. It bloomed fully and the blooms lasted forever. Mine had a nice scent, does yours?

    Thank you! Nope, unfortunately no scent on this one, but hopefully these blooms will last forever too.
