    She's beautiful, even if she does have little marks. I hate bugs and boy do they love a healthy plant to sink their teeth into, don't they? Thanks for sharing. I will post more as time permits and as the blooms open here. I have 27 spikes growing on my orchids now so I'm hoping for an amazing winter show.

    The little pink/white one has company now as the lime green/chartreuse one has it's first bloom open today. Cute little thing too with it's red/orange freckles! Also smaller bloom than the pink, a true miniature.

    I really love the little "green" one and when it is in full bloom it really is a nice show! I have found it very difficult to grow orchids really well here during the winter months and bring them upstairs hasn't really helped a lot. So will have to try wrapping the shelving unit they are on in plastic sheeting and mylar and see if that will help. Getting rid of the bugs would also help!

    She is so green! and the lip, though, is bright lemon yellow! Absolutely amazing! It does fade as the bloom matures but it can stay in color for a couple of months so who cares! Wish they would pup (or keikei) like the hippies do, you'd love this one! And it would love GA, too!!
