New Orchid: Dtps. Yu Pin Burgundy

Dtps. Yu Pin Burgundy

     This phal is slightly smaller than the Dtps. Jungo City, but not by much.  As the name suggests, this is another attempt on my part to purchase a red phal flower.  With 5 mature leaves up to 7" long, and one new growing leaf, I'm hoping I won't have to wait too long to see this phal flower.

     Like the other phals, this orchid came potted in sphagnum moss.  Since the moss looks really fresh, I'm holding off on repotting, and trying to water appropriately.  The moss takes longer to dry out than bark does, but the skewer method seems to work well enough.
