Just one of my large semi albas has decided to flower this year, the other is growing instead. They were originally from the Fischers and are huge. Despite the fact that the petals are only spread at 90 degrees, the flowers are just under seven inches (17cm) across. They are eight inches (20cm) in height.
Please forgive the scaffolding in the photos. We have our annual orchid society show this coming weekend and I wanted to manipulate the position the buds as they opened so we have nicely spaced and presented flowers. Last photo shows it with Aranaka Germaske.

Enormous, and a stunning presentation overall, congrats! Personally, I hope the tube is more closed on future bloomings, but you have some great contributions for the show!
