Here's an updated photo of my Jerry Spence. The last 2 flowers are almost open. 4 spikes and 16 flowers. It's growing happily in semi-hydro in high light in my g.h. I had to take a photo of it outside as I didn't have a backdrop large enough to get all the flowers. Plus the lighting here is horrible due to almost one full week of rain. Thanks for looking:>

Thanks guys. I'll have it with me on Feb 6th for my orchid society "show-off" table. I'm hoping it still looks good then. The AOS judges will see it there, but I compared measurements and the flowers are a bit smaller than recently awarded. That is if I'm measuring correctly...I'm no expert with the ruler. But most have been awarded with an average of 4 flowers and the most had 10. We'll see if it makes it through the car ride and is in decent shape.

Very, very nice. I like the colour. Cannot only be judged on size?

10% of score on the score card - about 95% to have it pulled to be judged. :wink:

Beautiful job Candace!!! I hope the semi-hydro people pay you for some of the best advertising they could get. :clap:

Wouldn't it at least, be eligible for a cultural award? The smaller flower size shouldn't have a bearing? I'd be THRILLED to have one of my multis look like that a few years down the road!

Ha! I wish! It would be nice to have some money coming in instead of going OUT all the time.

Candace, that is an amazing plant. You have every right to be proud of that one.
