    I got this one as B. repens. Ron Parsons was the one who gave me the the B. cogniauxiana name.

    That is beautiful clone, Marni. Mine bloomed back in Nov. and the flowers on mine definitely have less color than yours.

    Thanks, Tom. It might just be the lighting. In the greenhouse it looks more like what a friend calls "vaseline on a stick".

    Old thread, Marni, but what light level do you grow this one at? Thanks!

    It is moderate light. Masdevallia or Miltoniopsis light. It may take brighter, that is just the place I found worked. It is the north side of a bench and it is hanging on the edge of the bench so some leaves overhang and shade it.
