    This is the first bloom of 18 spikes so I'm excited to share. The plant is busting out of the pot so it may be time to separate it after the blooming. I separated a piece 3-4 years ago and put in in a tree. It has 3 spikes on it now so will share when it blooms as well as more of this one as the buds open.

    Fabulous Sheryl Looks like about twenty spikes or possibly 18 and the leaves are green and clean. Is it planted in the ground?

    Thanks Harvey! And yes I'm happy to be able to grow outdoors. As I've stated to you before, it must take a lot of work to grow indoors. I admire your work and devotion.

    Thank you Chris. I know it's hard to see but there's a little pot underneath. Time to separate after blooming I believe.

    That is really stunning Sheryl, can not wait to see it when all the blooms are open. I would leave it as a big show orchid!
