Went home for the weekend and picked this up at the local orchid show. The plant is from Golden Gate Orchids. (Sorry for the glare on that first photo)

Looks great! Is that really a division of 'Borneo' or is it a selfing?

Very nice.

Do you have any idea how old this plant is?

It has bloomed once before on the third oldest growth (this spike is on the forth oldest) and has six additional new growths. My 'Borneo' x 'Charles E' takes a year to develop a blooming sized growth but has much less compact leaves then this one --so basically your guess is as good as mine. :confused:

Yikes, that sounded like one of those SAT math problems.
