    I was pleasantly surprised to see these blooms after a two year hiatus with the plant almost dying. It bounced back and gave three wonderfully graceful flowers. Nature is such an artist. NS 13.5 cm

    Plant grows under lights 4 x T4 6400K (20 cm from light) in large bark mix, 12 hours winter, 14 hours summer, watered 2-3 times weekly with RO, fertilizer MSU, kelp, CaMg alternatively

    Thanks all. It (flowers) seems to like being under the bright T5 lights without fading so far (3 inches from bulbs). Let's see how long it maintain in the heat (eventhough a fan is blowing on the flowers constantly).

    I think I have a coerulea version somewhere as well as a concolor too. Hope they bloom!

    I asked around re: AVN. Seems like nothing exists of this award system. Even Suwada orchids was not sure it even belonged to them. So a mystery so far!

    I did not find anything on Orchid Wiz. Perhaps a typo?

    I asked my South American friends as well as Japan if they knew what AVN was and no one knew. So might be a typo on the tag. I also checked online, OrchidWiz and AOS awards but ‘no cigar’ as they say...

    Suwada is a Japanese nursery. I have personally contacted the owner regarding this plant and he was the one that confirmed that this might not belong to his nursery. So it is a mystery.
