    I did a quick search here for this species, but didn't see any posts with photos so I thought I would share some of mine from a recent blooming.

    I received this one early last fall in a trade. So far it has done well for me, but it definitely seems to like it quite a bit dryer than I have been keeping my other pleurothallids - something I'm still getting used to. I'm growing this one in a bright spot up high in my 20 gallon grow-out/orchid tank.

    Fantastic! Nice growing this plant, I love the size, color and shape. Looks very healthy.

    Yours looks great. I've grow in for year, but don't remember seeing it bloom in a long time.
