    I purchased this one from Bleecker in April (March?) 2008. She was selling it to raise money for JohnM's recovery. Fordyce Orchids used it in its breeding program before closing down. This is a division of the original awarded clone. It didn't bloom last year, but this year it graced me with 3 spikes. It's the most expensive orchid I own.

    That is a lovely thing.

    Please, may I get in line for a division, someday?

    I need a new monitor. The pictures looked perfect on my desktop machine, but they look purple on my laptop. The flowers are a brilliant pink.

    Dammit man.
