    Purchased from SVO several years ago as a small seedling, it was awarded this past weekend. It is a strong grower and produces multiple growths. Just happens to have only one growth in bloom this year, but there are several that should be in bloom next year. It has 5 flowers on a spike about 30 inches tall. NS = 23.2 cm, DS = 4.6 cm DSCN1826.JPG DSCN1821.JPG

    Am I being daft? I'm sure the bottom picture has 5 blooms...

    Gorgeous regardless!

    Congrats! Nice flowers but I am quite surprised the judges still award this old hybrid.

    You are correct! I fixed the error. What can I say? Brain fart?

    The "FCC SS" I get, but "SVO FB"...that's an abbreviation or two too many for my ol' head to cope with! o_O :confused:

    SVO is Sunset Valley Orchids. They sell a lot of different things, including paphs. Their prices are quite reasonable, but the selection is limited. The plants are always nice. I recently purchased a flask of their mini catts and was very satisfied with both the price and the plants. Mike

    Oh, I quite forgot: very well grown plant - and such a neat and orderly greenhouse or conservatory, where everything seems to thrive!

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    nice plant but i have to admit that my first thought was similar....

    very nice and orderly, lots of air, not much, if any, crowding...

    very jealous of your control in the over buying department... :)
