My specimen sized plant of Lc. Fire Dance 'Patricia' is blooming on 5 spikes with 18 flowers and 8 buds. I knocked one spike off getting it down so it should have had another 4 flowers..oops. This is a cross of c. aurantiaca x Lc. Fire Island and was bought from Fordyce orchids orginally. I inherited it from a friend who got out of growing orchids. It's outgrowing it's 8" pot rapidly and loves semi hydro. I grow it hanging in the g.h. in high light. Not all the flowers could fit in the photo.

Very rich orange red. I actually prefer this fiery color more than the blue red.

well named -- and photographing them with sunlight dancing on the flowers certainly intensifies the color.
