    Cool "Shelob Webmaster" Spider Orchid a cross of Brassia & Miltonia

    Here are pictures of my Shelob Webmaster from a showing of a little bud to full bloom.
    It took from the showing of the spike in the first days of September to full bloom around the end of October, so I would say 2 month. Hope you like the picture journey.

    also, the color on the lip of these shelob hybrids tend to start more beige, and develope more pink after a few days. as they fade they can turn a deeper red color.
