    Oh my gosh, Gilda; that's wild! The lip looks big enough to eat out of! Are you growing in your house??

    It is huge...top to the lip is 6 inches with a spread of almost 6 inches. It is in my dining-sunroom now but was in the growing area/ treehouse greenhouse(which has skylights and gets lots of bright light).

    Let me see if I can show you what I am talking about. This was under contruction..adjacent to our sunroom/dining room.

    Very nice, I love your Psychopsis. Mine have been in bloom forever, so don't cut the spikes off.

    Now I want one of these too! We had one a couple of years ago that bloomed forever. I am not sure what happened to it. I always thought it looked like a beautiful month or butterfly.

    Very well grown, Gilda!

    Cheers!

    No kidding, that's an awesome room for orchids!

    How do I post the picture from webshots?
    Gilda, other than the way you already did, you mean? You can click on the IMG button just above the text area where you write a new post. That'll bring up a window where you can copy the URL of the photo from webshots. Then, click Ok. It'll paste the appropriate code into your message. But that's called "hot-linking" and I don't know if webshots allows you to do that. If it doesn't, you may have to upload the pic from your local machine, just like you're doing the others.

    Brutal, they are sometimes commonly known as Butterfly orchids because the blooms resemble butterflies.
