New blooms on the slipper orchid

This NOID slipper orchid blooms every year when the weather is cooler around November and December. Its blooms last a very long time, too.

But in the past it didn't give me as many blooms as it does this year.

Slipper orchids prefer cool climate. I cannot grow them in my Saigon garden.

This is a giant! But definitely gorgeous and looks sweet :-D The bloom bigger than your palm?

Very beautiful... you have so many interesting and lovely plants! And yes I did find your posting on the Jade vine... thank you. I posted a couple photos of the jade vine taken by sister-in-law in VietNam today. Larry

Stephanie: yes, the blooms on this plant are bigger than most other slipper orchids. Still, it's not as big as my palm, though.

Larry: I just visited your blog. Wow, I have been so bad not visiting you long before. I've missed out a wonderful site :-(
