    Is is approximately 11 cm across. It is not open all the way, and has been open a few days. I don't know that it will open any more than it has already.

    Paph Angela

    Aproximate size is 8 mm x 7.5 mm. I ordered from Krull-Smith with my AOS coupon and paid with a credit card and they brought the orchids with them to the Longwood Gardens show. They are available on their website for $15 each and I should have bought more!
