Odontoglossom Castle de Stro #16

OdmCastledeStro051916Bob Hamilton gave me this Odontoglossom Castle de Stro #16 on Sunday May 15, 2016.  It is a young orchid with a single bloom on a short spike.  It has two new growths coming from its productive pseudobulb, and looks like a healthy plant.  It is planted in bark, and I will keep it there this year, or until the two new pseudobulbs decide to grow out of the pot.

It has a very dramatic color scheme, with maroon over white, with some slight yellow at the lip.  The petals are very wide.
