wow..... seems unlikely this grex could be available in the US, but i'll ask about the source anyway... local Aussie breeding? or elsewhere?

That is like a painting...deserves a 16” by 20” enlargement and a nice frame! Great culture and great photography!

I bought this plant from an Australian orchid nursey - Orchid Species Plus. Bill Miles got a flask from an Asian nursery I believe - maybe Thailand (not 100% sure). This is the pink form of the species apparently. Bill told me the seedlings were pretty uniform in quality.

Thanks for the good side pic.

I can see the floral bract (the leaf like sheath where the flower connects to the stalk) and the ovary. Also the color transition of the pouch, with the 'exit lanes'.

David, it's a stunner! Kudos for growing and flowering such a beauty!

(I somehow feel it's up for selfing! Might my premonition hold some thruth?)
