I got this from Carter and Holmes 8 years ago. It grows very slow for me, and it probably had some accidents and recovery, and it finally bloomed! It is an offspring from 'Raye' x 'Chester Hills' AM/AOS. 'Raye' is from 'Janet' FCC/AOS x 'Chester Hills', so it is a back-cross. Petal is 14x1.3cm and Dorsal sepal is 6.4x4.8cm. It was growing at the area where the lighting is pretty close to plants, so the inflorescence had to stretch to the dark area above the lighting. This might have caused the long internodes between flowers. (photos from May 30, 2020)
