    After finding out about the mites I also found this open. Good way to end the night :)

    I don't think its fully opened yet but it's definately bigger than the first time this guy bloomed.

    Nice.

    Are bellina's as fragrant as violaceas? I just got one and am not detecting much fragrance at all. It's the 'Ponkan' AM/AOS mericlone from Orchids Ltd. Might it have to do with the fact that it's a mericlone?

    You don't know what violaceas smell like? You need a few in bloom!

    Good growing! It's a beauty!

    Now please don't forget to get your hands on a loupe and check for those things that begin with an "m".....

    Thanks everyone.

    Ki - Thanks for reminding me. After reading your response I went ahead wiped the over and underside of the leaves with a cotton round soaked with neem and all found was dust.....no orange and no pitting....but i will be ever vigilant

    Marco, be sure to treat the spikes. Mites will happily live there, too.
