After it got its award at spring of this year in April, it grew fast after repotting to flower again. Flowers are a little bigger in some areas; like the petal widths now are 2.2 cm vs 1.8 cm. Presently dorsal sepal looks straight but may reflex at base in a few days.

it’s one of my favourite album forms/shapes as it’s similar to javanicum albums.

NS 12 x 11 cm
DS 5 x 5 cm
P 2.2 x 7 cm

I have 2 green flower slippers because of vendors error. I'm not a fan, but on the plus side both my plants seem to be more vigorous than the coloured forms. Do you find that or am I dreaming.

Thanks again for your kind comments.
Has anyone noticed the green spider hiding inside the staminode? I just saw it!!

Source of the spider? Or plant?
Plant is from Glen Decker.
The spider design shape is inside within the staminode. See it?

Yes, the spider marking is part of the staminode. Almost looks like it will attract a spider to do pollination, which of course is impossible as they are not known pollinators of slippers.
