My first multi, bought off eBay in 2014 from Lucky Girl Orchids (now defunct). Lucky me, two years later I took it to St. Louis for judging, and it won an 87-point AM. It is the current record holder for natural spread on a Prime Child at 22 cm. Most it's ever done is three flowers, but I'm hopeful we can hit 4 one day. It is a vigorous grower and reliable bloomer.

Tag says primulinum x rothschildianum 'Hilo Sunshine' suggesting Hilo Orchid Farm.

Attached some pics of the buds as well as the open flower. Love the even, symmetrical stripes; just wish the pouch coloration was better.

Fantastic ... only one way to go... up to FCC 90 pts or higher with 4 flowers! Good luck.

Thank you! It's been 6 years already but I've lived in 4 different places so it has had to adapt to new conditions several times. Hopefully once I stay put for awhile it can really take off.
