    I have to go with the top one too, but maybe it is just the angle the pictures were taken. It is interesting how both labellum are clear of colour. It always amazes me how some of the traits in some flowers just muscle their way through everything.

    Thank you Ross!
    Not a big flower for that leaf span (but soo lovely!)
    Did it keep its shape so far?

    That's really VERY nice, Ross. Well done.

    Keep at it with a slightly more frequent KelpMax doses, and you'll have divisions in no time.
