    Hello all,

    I'm writing this post and realizing that the last thread I posted here was nearly 3 years ago now. I haven't really left since I still read this forum multiple times a week, but I guess I just haven't had the time to post anything new. I am happy to recognize a number of familiar names here from many years ago now.

    I currently have an E. henrici in flower for the first time. This is only the second time I've ever seen this species in bloom in person, and it is nothing short of spectacular. This particular plant is a Madagascar import from LA Orchid Connection. If you have an interest in Madagascan plants and have never ordered through them, I would highly recommend it. Plants get to the US in much better shape than the old Malala days, and losses are much fewer in my experience.

    Now to the flowers:

    I have one as well, but it hasn't bloomed for me. How are you growing it?
