So, if I ever had to pick just one orchid, I think this species would be it. Of course, don't tell all the rest of my plants -- and don't think I would give any of the rest of them up without a fight. This blooming has 39 flowers on 2 spikes. Some of the flowers haven't quite opened so they aren't flat, but I had a second to really take a picture. That probably won't happen again for another month.
