    Hello All
    This is my first post here but almost feel like I know you all as I have followed the forum since a good while, anyway i flowered today this Charlie, it come from north Thailand,it is a bit strange small dorsal and all, even if i know there are many variant not often seen nor collected due to people asking for showy big dorsals whath you all think?

    Hello Phala

    Welcome on board!

    You are right, the dorsal is of a slimmer sort, which probably wouldn't make the flower candidate for an award in the eyes of orchid judges... But I like your flower, especially for its gorgeous and saturated colouring!

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    Oh, yes...slowly getting there (and if a first time bloomer, much can still be gained in the due course of time!).

    Seems like the flower wasn't fully opened in the first pic. Now it looks more like a common type charlesworthii - albeit, with rather good colours!

    I agree, I have been in hurry to post it, and too fast to judge it, now look like a classic Charlie with slightly smaller dorsal... I like it a lot to be honest much better than more recent selections
