Got this one from Heather. Bloomed for me about 6 months ago and now its at it again :clap: The flower looks much better compared to last blooming. It's probably going to open up more but I like it where its at right now

Here's a photo from a few minutes ago


Here's a photo from january where the dorsal is at a similar stage


Thanks for looking :)

I like it! Such a beautiful combination of bright and light colours. Heather, you were so wrong when gave it away!

By the way, how big is the flower?

Phew! The petals on this one are very impressive--not to mention the colours.
Very well done.
Thanks for posting
Happy growing

So lovely and graceful. I think you have convinced me to put this on my wish list.

Shadow - here you go:



It's about 4" tall and 3" wide.

The petals are also starting to twist a little.

about 15 days later. The petals haven't curled which is great. And all 3 flowers are fully open and the stem is about 2 feet long. Here's some more photos and close ups.







Here's a photo of when they first opened up for me early January this year:

Those are some nice flowers. Is it normal for them to bloom2 times a year? How long do the flowers usually last?
