Ursula , that is some start to the month. Your medusa is amazing, and it clearly is happy at your house. Those gongoras always make me smile, their structure is just crazy.
Elaine, that Schombo is ridiculous. Funny how Mother Nature adapted that one to attract whatever the pollenators are.. an 18" spike wasn't enough , needed to be 12'. They probably grew in the Palm Tree crowns or something like that in nature.
I've got a few new photos today.

It's hard to capture the diamond dust on this one
Coming up on 3 weeks open for C. Mark Jones 'SVO' X C. Chocolate Drop 'SVO'
it started out a deep burgundy/maroon color and has aged to this pretty orange with dark spots
and with a tissue paper thin flower C. labiata 'September Mist' AM/AOS
This is Lc. Loog Tone 'NN'. I have no record of buying it or it ever blooming before. Im not sure that I'm totally in love with it . Those flowers that are opening sideways and upside down are setting off my OCD
It does have 3 spikes though so I have to give it some credit! It's probably going to be rehomed. I have an order in with SVO and Motes and there's an open house at Florida Suncoast Orchids next weekend with 4 growers participating.
