The prices aren’t as good, but the Vons and Albertsons by me also have them in stock.

This one from Trader Joe’s was $16. I can imagine Vons and Albertsons has them at $25?

I didn’t check the prices, but that's usually about right. Sometimes Vons/Albertsons “pretties” up the pot and then they run $35.

At least! Same with Safeway.

And worse with the Cymbidiums. Suddenly, the $40 Cymbidium becomes... $75!

Matsui Nursery did reply and say that to them... it appears to be a variety known (to them) as “Masai Red.”

You'll never know for sure, but just enjoy your beautiful orchid!
Thank you. I’m certainly enjoying this orchid and she already drank some water today.

Sounds about right, and mine is extra splashy.

Conclusion: Oncostele Midnight Miracles, a beautiful name for a beautiful orchid.
