Very well grown.

I was able to grab an order from looking glass when I heard they were closing. A while from blooming but that just gets me excited.

As an aside. How do you do your stunning black background photos

Absolutely gorgeous, and VERY well grown! I had an opportunity to buy one of a similar color last year, but funding was low and I didn't. Kickin' myself now.

Thanks for the comments. I’m amazed that it held six flowers. One of them usually pops off...

DirtyCoconuts - the background is black felt. Depending on the exposure or depth of field, you don’t see it.

Very nice!!! I wonder about the name 'Pisgah'. My wife and I are currently trying to obtain a property that borders Pisgah Nat. Forest. I wonder if this was named so because the people who created it grew it near that place.

Tindomul,
The ‘Pisgah’ clonal name probably arose from Owens Orchids being close to the forest. I believe Russ Bolt from Looking Glass Orchids used to work for the Owens. He grew all their Cattleyas in Promix HP and still does.

Nice. One of my secret reasons for wanting a place there is to be able to grow plants like orchids. The weather seems perfect for it.

Summer temperatures above 2,000 feet won’t be nearly as high as at sea level down south...
