Potinara surprise!

Wow, that was fast! Here you go, she started opening today. The colors are not fully developed yet and the petals not fully flexed. I enjoy watching the various shape/color changes all flowers go through. Hope you do too!

Potinara Chief Sweet Orange in bud

Just over a year ago I purchased this Potinara in bloom from Crystal Star Nurseries while on day trip. I wait in anticipation as this is the first re-bloom for this prized orchid! These buds are huge, measuring almost 3" long already.  I would say perhaps another 2-3 days before the bloom starts to unravel and then it will take several more days for each bud to totally unfurl and for the fragrance to emanate... will just have to be patient.
