    This is a very reliable bloomer. The plant is growing on a horizontal mount.

    One of mine is in bloom now too. Not as big as yours, not as impressive. Nice job. Can you talk a bit about the conditions where you grow it?

    I'm not doing anything special with it actually. But I do give it a lot of light; it is hanging quite close to a 100 W LED in the basement from October till end of May. After that I have it hanging outdoors exposed to sun until noon. It gets very hot here during summer (~95 degrees F) but it doesn't seem to mind. I give it water almost daily also in winter.

    As you know very well, sometimes it is almost all about the clone.

    Two years after my original post, here is the plant after it received a CCM and HCC at the judging center in DC.

    Thanks. It felt really good (but expensive)!
