One of the nicest I've seen. Presented by Krull-Smith and awarded this last weekend in Orlando. Petals are 3.4cm wide and the natural spread is just shy of 9cm.

This one is from Orchid Zone's ('Big Bob' x 'Colossal') batch.

Very impressive. I can't wait to see the next gen of besseae hybrids using the 'Colossal' strain besseae.

That's absolutely amazing. The petals are almost circular. Any idea what the point score for the AM was? Thanks for sharing.

Very impressive flower! It's amazing how selective breeding over a few generations can change the look of a species. I'm sure the "purists" out there are having trouble reconciling this flower with the jungle collected version.
