    I got this from Far East Agriculture in 2015, and it finally bloomed (the photo is from April 12, 2020). Pretty interesting flower (dissected flower photos on my blog post (link)). It is a slow grower for me.

    Your plant looks beautiful! I got one in 2008 from Dan. It is a slow grower and for me a bit of a shy bloomer. I do have a few seedlings from an outcross I did. I have all of them mounted, maybe I will try a few potted. What medium do you have it in?

    Hi Marni, I'm using just 100% fine bark, and keeping the media low in the pot in an attempt to keep it contained. But it is crawling out now. I think I would mount it if I had space because of the long internodes. It's slow for me, too, and it's been about 1-2 pseudobulbs per year or so, but it looks like they are making 3 leads this year.

    Marni, do you plan to sell any of the seedlings? This is an amazing species!

    I haven't had enough to want to sell them. I need to work on them to get them growing better so I can get blooms. I resowed stored seed a couple of years ago and have some flasks that will be ready soon. Send an email if you are interested in reserving one.
