I've never been a big fan of orange. It's not as bad as yellow, though. Orange is okay. I grew to like it at one point, but now it is back to being okay. Unless it is my Ascocentrum miniatum. Then it is fabulous. According to my blog, the spikes began appearing about January 20, now in full bloom.
I've had this plant since about 2002, and it has traveled with me wherever I've moved to. It moved with me to California and back, and didn't like it, but recovered.
The roots are now growing through the supports and mesh of the orchidarium, so I left the plant there instead of taking it out to the studio lights to photograph.
The individual flowers are 9/16" across, natural spread, and a black button nose.
