    I have also seen the species spelled odoardoi but Kew accepts odoardi.

    This is the first blooming on this seedling purchased from Orchids For The People a few years ago. It may open further but not sure. Next time hopefully the flower count will be better. The foliage has a hint of purple that doesn't show in the photo.

    That is Trichosalpinx chamaelepanthes growing on the same mount. I have it growing numerous places like Spanish moss. Just can't get it to bloom:rolleyes:

    Very nice! I'd had this species for close to two years, but no blooms yet. How much light does it get?

    Pcolman, sorry for the slow reply.
    It gets bright diffuse light in the mornings (until maybe 1:00 pm this time of year) then progressively shadier as the day goes on. It is growing next to Coelogyne fimbriata and directly above Mediocalcar decoratum. Warm temps and year-round water.

    Sounds pretty close to what I'm giving it. Probably just need to wait more, my plant is smaller than yours. Thanks.

    Thank you.

    FYI, it did open further and turned slightly more orange.
