    Malipoense x leucochilum.
    This is a first time bloomer. The flower opened up a few days ago and it continued to increase in size for the next couple of days. Now it is much larger than when first fully opened.
    All kinds of issues along the edges and those hooks and teeths on the pouch which commonly happen on this kind of hybrid.
    No fragrance.
    At least this one is a lot greener than my first plant of the same hybrid.
    I might give it a second chance.

    It definitely deserves another chance. Despite the flaws, which as you know could just be because it's a first bloom, the overall shape, base color, and that spotting are all top notch on this. I hope it does straighten out some of the glitches in the future.

    thats also very nice, especially with the green background and strong markings.

    I agree with everyone else. It needs at least a second chance.

    If you come to our next meeting, which is an annual fundraising auction, you might see this guy as well as some others. ;)
