Adaglossum Summit ‘Frenchtown’ Orchid

I bought this orchid three months ago.  It arrived as a mature plant in a 100mm pot.

End of October 2016

Since then I have repotted it in a 130mm pot and it has thrown out two flower spikes (or two ‘swords’, as the Chinese would say).

Twelve flowers on each sword

This morning I found that the second lowest bud on one of the swords had opened.  It is, as advertised, the ‘ultimate Jaffa Orchid’, in chocolate brown and orange.img_1683
