This is a first time blooming on a single fan plant I got at Woodstream Orchids open house. It’s (niveum ‘Pino Blanc’ x niveum ‘Champagne’) It’s a good size flower it’s cupped a little more than I like... 7cm NS. If it flattens out some on the next blooming it will be quite a bit bigger.

I suspect it will be flatter when it blooms again in warmer weather. Most of my spring blooms have been mediocre with this endless chill.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.

I’m hopeful that’s the case. I have another niveum in bud right now and I’ll post a picture when it opens.
