Lovely one, Leslie ! 👌 Large flowers, good colours and a good shape...that's all you need.

Leslie, I also have a plant that I got from Orchids Limited as ('Natural World' x self) but I can tell by the tag they did not do the cross, so maybe got a flask or some plants from the same source you did. My flower is very similar to yours. The growths are short with thick pseudobulbs. There has always been a thick double sheath that I need cut the top 1/3 of off early to allow the inflorescence to get out. I have bloomed it five times but only once in the fall (twice summer, twice winter) but that must be cultural on my part.

I would love to see a photo of your flower? Just to see the range. I will post 'Blue Balls' pic up when I find it.
