    It took a while but at last most of the spikes are in bloom.
    I'm soooo inlove with this orchid.
    I think I even might have found a name to it: Miltonidium Rosy Sunset.
    It smells heavenly:

    yeah, that probably is Rosy Sunset. Pupukea Sunset (aka "Pukey Sunset" which also looks similar) has shorter spikes and an odor exactly like when a baby "cheeses" on you (a smell which I have smelled a lot, having ten children).

    Dana, that is beautiful! I bet that would win some awards at an orchid show. I love how perfectly balanced the spikes and blooms are on the plant. It looks sooooo healthy too! Congratulations!

    Cheers!
