This was a gift from my orchid mentor in MN (terryros) when he divided a plant very special to his family. This is half of his plant which had to be spectacular!! I can take no credit for the bloom, if came to me “in spike”. I potted it and it bloomed a few weeks later. Four huge spectacular blooms with a very sweet fragrance. A beautiful “splash” on the petals is serendipitous.
This may just be my favorite orchid of all time...

You may find it fun to read details about the creation of this cross in a piece by the Chadwick's.

Thanks, Terry, I’ve not seen that before. Haven’t had a chance to look it up.
