    Default Another orchid ID contest

    It is going to be a first time bloomer for me soon. This plant came from a plant trade with a forum member two years ago.
    There "might be" a winning prize to be announced by Ron-NY but he doesn't know for sure yet... Here is the photo of the flower buds:

    Yeah, the prize will come from you. Read the edited posting

    Ron, it dropped all the leaves when the spike is about 5" tall.

    You just have to go for the kill so soon, don't you?

    I think your bro's check is good and I will be more than happy to accept it for you.

    Nice guess, Ron.
