    I always thought that var. insignis was a slow grower and a shy bloomer. And then met an orchid grower that has the perfect condition for this plant. In his garden, located in the mountains of Puerto Rico, humidity is high, temperatures are in the middle seventies during the day and dip into the sixties at night. The plants are growing in full sun. They get fertilized regularly. He tells me that they grow very well, even better than the nominate form of the species. The photograph doesn't show the flowers too well because the stems are tied to a fence that has red plastic in it.
