Odtna Yellow Parade 'Alpine'

Odtna Yellow Parade 'Alpine' ready to be re-potted

Odtna Yellow Parade 'Alpine' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergPlant photo by Richard LindbergThere are two times that an orchid will bloom, either it is happy or that it thinks death is near. My bet is the latter as the reason for this plant's flowers.

I took this outside and cut and cleaned. I thought I might get two divisions but one was really weak so I decided to pass. This one is weak enough but has two fairly well hydrated pseudobulbs and a new growth already started. It should do well enough to get going again. This is not a plant I will keep in the collection after it has rooted.
