    The longest cane is only 5 inches tall. Flowers are 1.5" across. Wonderful fragrance. Mounted on cork.

    I just bought a couple with buds/flower. I don't have any experience with them. Do these need a dry winter rest? Any practical care information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. IMG_5217.JPG IMG_5214.JPG

    Romy, welcome to the Forum and back to the orchid hobby.

    This is one of those species that is supposed to do better with a drier winter rest. However, the one that is posted above is receiving year-round water, very bright light, and is retaining its leaves for at least 2 years. I suspect it is forgiving of a variety of conditions including light levels, temperature and watering regimen.

    Yours look very nice. Since yours are in sphagnum just make sure you don't keep them too wet.

    Here is a pink blush clone of the same species. Grown in the same conditions.
