    I've seen a few pictures on FB lately, of linebred sukhakulii. In my opinion, they no longer resemble a sukhakulii, but are more like a hybrid. Wide, almost spotless petals.
    Maybe only me, but I just don't care for them.
    This is my sukhakulii #2, blooming right now. This is how I think they should look. Again, just my opinion, not necessarily yours :) , and I know there are much nicer ones out there.
    Am I just getting old and grumpy?

    Nice enough. These hybrid species are humans impression of improving nature's creation. It is what it is. Humans will never keep them alive like nature can. That's where we need improvement.

    It's a lovely sukhakulii classic, Per!
    But why be grumpy and not just love it all?! ;)

    Your P. sukhakulii is a very, very nice one....and that's important to me too, one can clearly see what it is.

    Could not agree with you more. LOVE your suk (not being cheeky or obscene, I simply cannot spell that species no matter how I try). A suk like yours is my next dream. May I as recommendations on where to get? Orchid Inn has nice ones I’ve seen and also has the kind you’re talking about (at least I think that’s where I’ve seen them)? I think I’ll have to purchase a plant that’s already in flower to make sure of what I’m getting. Let me say it again: yours is PERFECT in my sight. Any chance of a division someday? Thank you for posting it.

    @BrucherT Thanks. I got this one from Orchids and More in Germany. With me in Denmark and you in the US, sending a division most likely won't make sense :D
