    I received this in a recent trade (thanks Aaron) and this is its first and only bloom for me. The bloom is about 3/4" (19 mm) across. In the plant shot the mount is 2.25" x 3.1". This is day #2 for the bloom and I will report back to let you know how long it lasts. I am growing it in bright indirect light next to a Cochlioda rosea and a Ceratostylis philippinensis.

    Yay!
    Unlike the kirchianum, this one blooms for me on a regular basis.

    A couple of plants you sent me have flowered as well but I've been too busy (or lazy) to photograph them :(

    Beautiful. I look forward to the day when I have learned so much more and have successfully grown new and exotic orchids.
