A specimen “Jewel Orchid” grown by Block was judged by The American Orchid Society (AOS). A “Ludisia discolor” received their Certificate of Cultural Excellence (CCE) award and honored with a clonal name: “Michelle’s Jewel”, after Dr. Block’s wife. Plants receiving this rarely awarded horticultural distinction must be well-flowered, of robust health, and represent the very highest level of orchid culture.
