    I bought a good sized plant three years ago and have since repotted it. It seems to be thriving but no flowers. I originally had it in my greenhouse(intermediate temperature house) with the Cattleyas but then I read that it does better with intermediate light. I have it positioned with the Dendrochilum and Phalaenopsis for two years. Anyone have suggestions to get it to spike. Thanks for any help.

    Grow it cooler. Temperatures down to 50F in winter are beneficial and promote blooming.

    OK Raven, I am going to take your advice. I have turned the thermostat in my greenhouse down to 54 F. I'll keep you posted if and when I get a spike. Thanks for the advice, I hope.
