    I brought two of these orchids, the first one is a nice size with a good flowering stem, after a few days, the flower stem picked up. The second one I just yesterday and is twice the size with spotted leaves. now just waiting for that flowering stem to pick. Lovely orchids, they are well packaged, very nice condition. Will definitely buy again. Thank you
