Second blooming. This plant just wants to focus on it's growth, not it's blooms. Three last time, only two this time. Still, I'm just happy it bloomed. Could also likely use more light.

I love the little lavender touches.

The lavender touches are nice. When the second flower opens to to get a pic that shows the staminode.

Multi envy!

That is so cool....roebellinii is one of my all time favorites. How about crossing it to a parishii for maintaining twisty petals and increasing flower count? It has probably already been done before though.....or cross it with Lady Isabel, and you can have "Isabella Roebellini!" ( or "love child?"....perhaps I am dating myself)

How long was it between blooming episodes?
:drool:

It's funny, by heating the building to keep the older residents warm, it's too hot for my orchids. I open windows, then it gets too cold! The balance is tough.
Oh BTW, nice blooms. :)
