First, I'm glad, having spent some time in Michigan, you can understand my pain. Second, it really didn't occur to me--and I feel a little stupid for admitting this--that growing orchids in their...

I think "pretty darn nice" is, to put it mildly, a bit of an understatement. That is jaw-droppingly fantastic.

It's a great-looking spike of blooms, Kim. I like spotted bifoliate cattleya hybrids. Even though these aren't quite fully mature, can you detect any fragrance?

That's a really interesting growth habit--kind of reminds me of a ladder. The flowers look great. I'm sure you're looking forward to your plant flowering for its first time.

Too bad about the lack of a strong scent. But the shape and color are fantastic. It's quite an attractive spike of flowers.

Thanks for the reply! Interesting advice from the South Florida vendor--and too bad about the rats taking a liking to your plant. Your renanthera rooted well in the LECA?
