    I got a small flask of this (from Troy Meyers, maybe?) a few years ago and though it bloomed once when a small seedling, it has only just now bloomed again. I recall the earlier blooming being a bit more orange-ish on the tips. A friend I gave one of the seedlings to has bloomed his, and has some doubts as to its ID. Anyone more knowledgeable with Chysis species is welcome to chime in. The first bud to open suffered some damage, but has better color so is included here. The literature I have checked just isn't very diagnostic.
