Great flower count and spacing! Love the purple undertones in the pouch, it contrasts wonderfully with the white of the dorsal. How big is the plant? First bloom?

It is a pity about the reflexed dorsal. The rest of it is great. Five flowers is exceptional. Your flower counts are great at the moment.

Your plant looks simply formidable with 5 flowers, Stephen! :)

So, the old print Isabel is incorrect, then? Who is Isobel?
The correction of the misspelled name by the RHS registrar is actually due to some brilliant orchid sleuthing by another STC-member, NickP.

These flowers are very impressive.....not only by its count but also by its more P. stonei influenced colouration and its more P. rothschildianum influenced shape. 👌
