Lime Spiders for Summer ?

Three spikes of spiderish blooms, speckled, elongate tepals, dark green raised spots on green, a labellum with  the same spots on white.The set seem out of season and so, something of a triumph. One frond was lost to possum pranks, while the whole plant gives lie to the oft-heard axiom that orchids like to be pot bound to flower.  This one has room and then some. Perhaps orchids are the ultimate real estate experts, and it's position, position, position.
