    Sorry I haven't been around much lately, school and expanding family have kept me extremely busy but I'll try to contribute a little more in the coming months.

    This is a first-bloom seedling, NS is about 10 cm and would be close to 14 if it opened flatter. I like it a lot though I'm not sure how much it improves over either parent, nonetheless a nice flower to have around. One of my favorite aspects is that it has a long, thick malipoense-ish spike but only took about 2.5 months from first showing bud to bloom like this. Happy New Year, everyone! :)
