    I just post other plant which was not assamica after all, but this plant now supposed to be rather fuscescens and it occurs to be assamica - lucky me :) two different sources both with wrong labels = fortunate for me results with two different and nice plants.

    Lovely flower and great photos, Piotr! The colors of the lip are really nice. What's the spike habit, is it apical or basal (or do some of these do both)?

    Thx. Spike appears before leaves from new growth, should be longer and arching, but my plant has only 3 flowers (first flowering) and is very short. Hopefully it should improve with age. Normal they should have even 8 flowers on up to 25 cm spike.

    Beautiful, Piotr, I don't grow it, but I do admire it.
