    This is one of the plants I purchased from Orchids For You. It was in very fat bud when I was in the shop, and as we were chatting the bud started to pop! This is just a quick snap with a new photo app, i'll take more later

    It is a very pretty blend of colors and a very attractive picotee. It's a fatter flower in all regards to p olaf gruss, whose flower fell off a few days after I bought it, but both are quite similar. Interesting thing, olaf gruss plant many leaves in compact upright, graceful, and flower is thinner and more graceful. Geigelstein bigger beefier flower, and plant has bigger leaves, take up more vertical space

    More buds on the way!

    I was going to mention it looked a bit like MM. My geig.
    bloomed in the fall and now I have to wait for the new
    growths to mature. I hope the second blooming is as good
    as your flower.

    Having reticulatum as a parent makes the leaves and bloom larger than Olaf Gruss or Mountain Maid.

    I think this is the third bloom with another bud coming

    Pictures taken early evening after I got home, so color might be slightly off (there is a little green but not as much as seen in the pictures)

    When mine bloomed the first time, the flower didn't last
    very long and it only had one. This time I hope for more
    flowers and more color like yours.

    My MM is blooming again for the second time and
    the flower is much better and will have several
    blooms this time around. The resemblance is
    kind of spooky. Oh, the blooms are larger as
    well, but can't tell from the photo just how big
    your bloom is to compare.
