    True miniature, grown under lights in cool area. If I recall it right, the first of five spikes began its development 6 months before blooming.

    Tom, my plant is in mounted on the tube made of leaf guard plastic mesh with no media at all. Just a little of Spanish moss around roots. Moss is not in good condition, perhaps it is too cold and wet for the moss.

    Thank you for the culture tip, Alexey. I should give it another try someday.
