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
