    Beautiful. How much light do you give it?

    Very nice! I'd also like to hear your culture for this, I have a couple (one might be nugentii?) that grow pretty well but rarely bloom.

    This is grown mounted. I hang it high in my greenhouse. it gets very bright light, the same I give rupiculous Laelias and Brassavola. My minimum night temperatures are 50 degrees. I think it likes a big temperature swing in the spring and fall, and a cool winter rest.

    Thanks, William. About how often do you water and how dry is the winter rest?

    I water once a week most of the year. November through February it's about every two weeks depending on how cloudy or bright it is. The Dockrillia just gets a misting during the winter with no fertilizer, again about once per two weeks.
