    This is a real favorite of mine. I found it as a small plant in a garden center in 2011 and bought it for a few dollars. So far it has managed to be in full bloom when no judging center in have been open.

    That plant looks fantastic! What kind of conditions do you give it in winter?

    Once it has finished growing in fall I put it in a bright window close to the glass. I would guess the temperature is around 55 deg F during cold nights. It gets water maybe every 3-4 weeks. The older Pseudobulbs shrivel quite much while I don’t let it go that far with the newer ones. I increase watering from March.
