    That flower has an absolute WOW-effect - no wonder with a parents going by the clonal name of 'Stunning'! So is the offspring, too! ;)

    Beautiful form, colour, intensity - if you had been on this side of the big divide (i.e. the Atlantic & CITES, too), I would, incessantly, have begged you for a division!

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    You're correct Ozpaph. The "Velvia film" setting on my camera adds too much saturation in the photo. Sorry I missed that. It's been adjusted to a much better representation and looks about perfect on my monitor, at least. It does have a lot of "red" though...I'm very pleased with this first bloom.

    Really nice! I missed out on getting some of Theresas fairr seedlings. Hopefully she will make some more.

    What are the measurements?

    Now THAT is a quality fairrieanum. I have to imagine it is bred from their AQ group, which was I believe from Orchid Inn breeding. Congrats!
