    This is the second blooming on this suk (which is from Little Frog Farms via Slipperking) Good size about 13cm

    This venustum is kind of twisty but opened better than last year.

    Very nice Rick. I haven't gotten any of the suks to bloom yet. One came up last yr and quickly blasted.
    Were did the venustum come from? I just picked up two more from different breeding; one from Doug, 'Masters' selfing suppose be much better then out-crossings. The other from Cal Orchids, one parent is called 'Red Red'. Time will tell. :eek:

    Very pretty flowers and the "little twisty" doesn't detract
    from the nice color.

    I had no idea that sukhakulii was that big. I'm waiting for mine to open for the first time. Nice to see these two.

    The vensutum came from Tom Kalina which I think are a from Taiwan breeding.
