    Orchid in bloom

    This is Mo. Painted Desert 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Morm. lawrenceana '#1'. It has a great minty/eucalyptus scent in the mornings, especially when the sun hits it.

    Incredible! Such great colors. How big is the orchid? It looks pretty big.

    That is one impressive plant. Judging from the size of the palms growing around it, the orchid is about 400 ft tall. Unless the palms are in the background, in which case the orchid is still darned impressive, if not quite as large.

    You really threw me with the name. I saw Mo. and assumed it meant Mormolyca, which is smaller and with less showy blooms. At least the one I had was. So I had to look it up to discover Mo. means Mormodes. Do you have other orchids too?

    Bruce,

    I primarily grow orchids. I got into CP's to control fungus gnats in my seedling tent. I have about 100 orchids from many different genera.

    Capensis,

    Size of plant. The bulb is about 8 inches (20cm) tall. Flowers are 2.5 inches (6.5cm) across. Not quite 400 ft tall.
