    I have shown this plant in previous years, but never with so many flowers. In fact only half the spikes are out, so far - 12 spikes. Plant is in a 5 inch saucer pot.
    I don't know how long they will last - we have a rather warm summer. But it will make a nice entry for our monthly virtual orchid show in Bournemouth Orchid Society - which I organise. Pics of all the entries go out in a newsletter each month - helping to keep up interest at a time when we are not allowed to have meetings ; at least I hope so.
