I love this orchid because of its giant shape, and it's almost sculptural it can stand on its own. Too bad that Indonesia can't grow this orchid due to it's climate difference, and I just got the news that we are no longer allowed to import any kind of orchids. So sad. If only we could grow ourself enough orchids - in terms of variety and volume - i'd be more than happy not using imported flowers. But we can't produce it ourself, so it's a bit too arrogant for making such rule, in my opinion. Anyway, there's nothing I can do, and to this beautiful orchid, I bid thee farewell.
