Worth the wait.
I couldn’t wait to post this up, even though this is just a preliminary photo and there will be more once the other blooms have opened up – I just have to share this.
I picked up this orchid at the Madison Orchid Show two years ago. I’ve been caring for the plant ever since waiting for it to bloom, and it finally delivered in a most spectacular way. The first bloom opened today, so we’ll see how long it lasts.
I’ll be taking plenty of photos – who knows when I might get a chance to see this again?
