I don't think I've ever seen one of these before
You are so right. In my country the usual unnamed hybrid from Holland in an ordinary flower shop costs $40. If you want something with the name and good quality it will cost around $ 60. Something absolutely special - not less than two hundred dollars. So, lucky those, who can buy such plants at such "expensive" price.You guys should come live in Japan for a while and your attitude about prices will change. When I came here in 2002 I felt that paying even $50 for a plant, no matter how rare or beautiful, was a bit outrageous. Now after living here for over 5 years and collecting all kinds of collectable orchids, $50 is the normal price for a nice plant, and the really good stuff costs at least $150 (and on up into the thousands if it is really special). Changes in perception are funny!
