    Julie mounted this as a small first bloom plant in 2010, just after we had moved into the greenhouse. Even though it's a quite common mericlone, it sure can put on a show of color.

    Thanks! I like the way the flowers display themselves when the plant is mounted compared to in a pot.

    Thanks, everyone! It seems that one rarely sees hybrids mounted. In fact, I think all the other orchids on this wall are species. With their vigorous growth and showy flowers, hybrids can offer a lot enjoyment, becoming specimen plants in as little as five years.

    I think your's beats that easily. I'm guessing between 130-150 flowers. Gorgeous!
