    My plant got 91 points. It has 10 flowers and four buds on three infls. NS 3.5 x 5.1 cm, DSW 1.1 LSW 1.2 and PW .7. One inflorescence has 6 flowers and 2 buds and the rest has two each and a bud. The plant is growing in a 3" pot in pure NZ moss (in the picture it is in a 5" ceramic pot.).

    perfect and wonderfully dark. Congratulations Ramon!

    congrats and nice flowers. it's a little surprising to me from what i've seen of judging in the east, that it got an fcc instead of a cce. also just surprised that it didn't get a cultural award at all! usually flowers like cornu cervis (phals) that don't have full round flowers no matter how nice for the species, don't get flower awards that high but would get cultural awards probably plus an am. don't get me wrong, i'm happy to see a species get a high award for an excellent version of what that species can be in it's own right :) just that i haven't seen it happen often (fcc wise at least)

    Stunning indeed! I'm no judge, but I think it deserves some kind of award. Congrats.
