Magnificent! Did you grow it from a seedling? How old?
I bought a seedling(~3" LS) straight out of a flask from Parkside Orchids in 2003 and it cost me $150 back then(I must have really wanted one...)it took me over 10 years to bloom it and this is the 4th time it bloomed. The cross was made by a reputable Taiwanese breeder, parentage is "In-Charm" X "Shin-Yi" SM/TPS

Tom- will you use the pollen for breeding?
A few years ago on this forum, I had offered pollen to anyone in the U.S. for breeding, but for the species only, not a hybrid. In return, I wanted a couple of seedlings...
I tried to have a division with an old-growth a couple of years ago, which turned out to be a failure...I might try selfing in the future if the plant gets stronger and I still have an interest in orchids.
