    This is a rewarding plant that grows fairly fast and blooms several times a year for me.
    I recently acquired another named clone from Mountain Orchids that has very dramatically
    variegated foliage, it was a small piece and slow to get going but starting to take off now. P1000652.JPG

    Wonderful.
    Do you keep this moist?

    Hi Kelly

    Thanks.

    Yes I keep it moist, it gets watered every day but it is growing on cork
    with only a little bit of live moss. I also grow it bright.

    I think Darrin's clone has the best markings of all. For all of the clones, the brighter the light you grow it in the more pronounced the patterning is. A truly great species!

    This is extremely well-grown, Mike. Is this growing in the same case as your cuthbertsoniis?

    Hi Goods
    Yes it's growing with cuthbertsonii up close to the lights.
