I think this was an Orchid Inn acquisition. Just opened overnight; I'm hoping it will flatten a bit.

The only AOS award listed in Orchid Wiz is a reciprocal with 3 flowers and 2 buds, with redder flowers and a natural spread of 14.2 cm. This single blossom (I assume due to the Conco-Bellatulum seed parent) is currently at 15.5 cm NS. Behind my hand is a bud on another growth.

I'm not likely to get it judged, but it IS a keeper.

Keeper for sure!! Is it grown S/H?
Yes, Indeed.

My tap water is quite pure @ ~110 ppm TDS (tested by JR Peters Lab), of which about 1/2 is added Ca by the town to compensate for the sourness brought about by 25 ppm S. It is flooded about 3-4x/week in the hot, hot summer. I apply ~100 ppm N K-Lite weekly, 1 tablespoon/gal Kelpak monthly (lately, a second time in the month, especially when in active growth) and Quantum-Total @ 1 oz/gal, also monthly.
