looks enviable-there is nothing that orchids may teach us if not patience and satisfaction-though sometimes I experience poverty and indulgent guilt but it passes very qucikly with practise. I was unfamiliar with this cross but love the dark flowers-keep us posted.

Awesome :) I'm so glad that you got a good one! Looks like a great dorsal and the petals look great too, so far... very nice indeed!

Thanks! :) Me too. Not quite finished opening fully...
I got the second one from Pine Ridge today and it is a 9-growth division. Going to be a while before that one blooms though, I think. It has a sheath but since it was just divided and has been through some stress, I'm not banking on it panning out.

What a dramatic picture of such a striking flower. I've been checking back everyday since you first posted it! :D Worth the wait.

Maybe it's just me, but I think P. adductum has, shall I say, a sort of "attitude" that comes across in its hybrids. I'm not sure what it is about it, but it is what attracts me to hybrids made with the species.

I tend to like the hybrids more than the species, actually. Grow faster too. :poke:

That's hideous. You should send it to me so you don't have to look at it anymore.
