    Actually it was shy of 31 cm, around 30.5 this year. That is the best it has done. On the other hand this year it only had four flowers. It usually has five. Here's a photo from 2016. And 2019 pic with ruler.

    That is amazing Justin. Great growing. It seems incredible that it could increase in size so much compared to when it was awarded an FCC.

    Is the DS wider than 5.5 cm?

    That's the sound that rational people emit when someone says that they spent 1/2 a car to buy an orchid!

    Thank you Justin!

    MM well cultivated is awesome and more charm in my eyes than many OZ last crosses. The worst in my eyes with the OZ selection is the too width petals.
