    Just opened today. I am a little bit disapointed by this plant this year since it bears only one flower instead of 2 or 3 like the last 2 years... :confused:

    Just kidding of course since there are 3 others new growths.

    That pouch is gorgeous and an altogether good flower. The
    dorsal and sepal color always seems to be not quite in
    harmony with the rest of the flower to me.

    Beautiful! After 10 years of growing from flask, my first kovachii produced a bud; but, then it blasted! Arrrrrrrgh! I still haven't seen one of these incredible flowers in person. REALLY looking forward to that. I envy you getting to enjoy flowers year after year. Next year, with 3 growths should be a great show for you. Good luck!

    OK.... I will a make another pic later !!

    About the light: there were several diffuse sources of light : over the bloom, at left and at right. In fact I took the pic "in situ", under the T5 bulbs under wich the plant is grown. There are several other sources of light in the room at left and at right... I just put a black fabric in the backdrop, against the wall. I had to background it a little bit with Photoshop tough... :)

    You have the merit to grow your own plants from flask.... Mine was a mature PK when I got it. I think I bought a very reliable one.
