Thanks, Bud. Actually, I merely forgot to go to my Picassa albums. When I realized this, I went back, and just copied the image location, and I got it on...BettyE

if you have the time, soak a cottonbud with hydrogen peroxide and wipe the leaves....I see dark dots with yellow rings around it....seems you have fungi on the leaves....the brown original listerine mouthwash will also do the trick

What a pretty purple/red combination-I'm going to keep my eyes open for this one.

Thanks for the tip...I didn't notice that! I'll swab the leaves down as soon as I go out to the greenhouse...BettyE

hmmm, I have a Trader Joe's Noid that just might be this one. Mine also grows slowly, and doesn't get a lot of blooms either.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone...Now that this orchid has been in the house for a couple of days, the kitchen/breakfast nook smells just like chocolate cake...BettyE
