    Default She's ready to go!

    This is Psychopsis Kahili 'Big', the plant formerly known as Onc. Kahili 'Big'. This is a much better bloom this time - I guess the enforced rest from my breaking off the last bud helped!

    Her figure is - wingtip to wingtip 4.5"
    top of the middle antenna to the bottom of the lip 7.5 "


    Also included is a shot of the whole plant. You don't need much square space, but you do need a lot of air space to grow these...

    Whoa...she's a gorgeous alien! Five??? I'd need a bigger place! I already need a bigger place. I can only love these critters from afar!

    Nice one, Diane! Glad it didn't hold any grudges!
