    I'll have to re-take those pics. They were out of focus.
    Nice plant, I got it from Sunset Valley Orchids.

    I've seen some examples of this cross on facebook before and they were nowhere near as good as this - like weedy hseagles. The yellow colour is its strength for me, but I still prefer some of the other gig crosses. And ChDancer can't be beaten.

    I just don't like the color scheme on chia hua dancer...maybe it's because I bloomed out seven of them and was just never impressed, but they sold really well...I would have to see this one live for sure
