Most likely that was Tom Perlite. I would have been the driver.
Oh. Would you mind strangling Tom next time you see him? Thank you.
We've gotten used to it here. Kind of take it for granted that Tom will have a spectacular one at a show. If he weren't such a nice guy, I would accede to your request.
Oh. Well OK, then. Several years ago I was at Patricia's in early May. We were orchid nerding in her entrance cool room when all of a sudden she let out a loud screech; I thought she was having a heart attack or had stepped on a nail or somethin'. Christ. She'd spied the spike of an Epigeneium lyonii that had opened it's first flowers. It was nice, to say the least.
How do you grow yours?
If I bloom it, you'll be able to hear me all the way in Oregon.
Forrest doesn't know how to do that. Want me to try?
"How do you grow yours?"
Right now I'm growing it bright, wet, and IW. I've tried a lot of other combinations, but none of them have worked.
Sure Jon, I'm sure Forrest would appreciate that very much.
If you're waiting on those two jeniuses to figure it out your plant may die of old age, Marnie
Here ..... print this out, lick it, and stick it to the bottom of your screen. Problem solved.
Wanders out to the mailbox wondering if said plant may arive before the snow melts
Hi Everyone, guess what i found when perusing Andy's site? He has updated the listing with a photo of the blooms!
I assume he was able to bloom it.
Here is the link:

Unfortunately it does not have the brilliance or charm of others in the oxyglossum group?
And I've been waiting for red flowers! I'm not giving up. (Is there an emoticon for grim determination?)
I had had my plant for only two months when this thread started, so I was hoping more culture tips would come...
My plant(came from Andy P.) is spiking now..., for the last 10 or 11 months, I've been growing it on hardwood mount, I/C temperature(55-75F, cooler in winter), daily watering and bright light(2500-2800FC). Air movement and rh are good. An extra doze of magnesium in the feeding program can be benefitial.

A friend is growing and blooming these (from the Hamilton sale) very well with an average high between 80-82°F and an average low of 56° and light between 1200-1800 foot candles. I think they have to get to a large clump to bloom well. The flowers are the size of cuthbertsonii but do not open their sepals, remaining cupped. They are medium-pink with orange lip.
One of mine has finally decided to bloom also and has 4 flowers (pink). But so far only one of quite a few plants has done this.
Oh, that's great news!
If the flower on mine were the size of cuthbertsonii, I would not have been so disapointed...
Although mine is an easy bloomer, the flowers on my plant are not even half of the size of a normal cuthbertsonii.
I mean to say, they would be the size of a cuthbertsonii if they actually opened fully in the manner of a cuthbertsonii, but since the sepals remain cupped, they appear smaller. Does this square with your plant?
Even if the flowers open fully/flat (like the cuthbertsonii), they are about half of the size of cuthbertsonii.
