    If your humidity is decent, you probably don't need a bigger mount..., it will grow just fine even if the roots and growths are just hanging in the air.

    Very pretty! I've killed a couple of these, not sure why since every other species I've tried in the section is doing fine.

    I love this species! The first time I saw this one was at a local orchid show some years back. the plant was huge, at least 3 feet wide, and completely flush with flowers. I didnt have a camera with me but I will never forget it. while I had been keeping a few orchids already at the time, it was seeing that specimen that inspired me to jump head first into the hobby...

    I should also note that that plant was potted in black cinder. That is how I grow mine and it does well. I've never been able to get a flush bloom though.

    Mine is blooming for the first time for me- I dunked it overnight in water and a month later it spiked. Guess that tells me something.
