    Oh how exciting for you Lisa! Is it the first blooming for it? I love cyms but they are so gosh darn big...no room... I love the darkish red/yellow ones and always visit them in my local farmstand when they have them.

    I really like the grassy foliage. Thanks for posting!

    Heather, there are min Cyms, you know. When I have a bigger place someday, then maybe I'll get a nice Cym.

    We have a Wilson's nearby in Concord that had a Phaius or two in April that was SO HUGE!!!!! I could not believe it...they had it at *gasp* $150!!! each!
    Yipes! It was so beautiful, but like a week later they were gone and I can betcha they did not sell them! Wonder what happened. They've had green slippers for like $75! Like Key Lime, or Guac. Totally overpriced, but I enjoy visiting all the poor doomed orchids...at least I don't buy them! That Phaius was fab tho! Hope it survived!!!!!!! (sure it did not. )

    Well I think that was a size discussion, sorry! lol!
    Mini cyms??? Don't tell me that!!!
