While visting our local plant shop, I noticed some really great looking orchids and bought on an impulse. Eye catching huge dark-purple flowers and extraordinary looking root system really sold me.

Flowers are 13 cm across, thick waxy texture with a blue-black lip.

The root system on this plant is about 76 cm. Roots should be allowed to let dry between watering, every 5 to 12 days. Fertilize every 5th watering.
