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.

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.
