    I'm happy to have the blooms, but quite frankly, the plant is still a bit too young. I got it as a seedling about 1 1/2 year ago, and it's still quite small. I've seen much bigger plants with the same size blooms. It seems happy and healthy, so I'm just going to enjoy it and be extra vigilant.

    She's a beauty! Very well done. I love the icy green color. :)

    I can't quite tell from the pics -- is this plant potted or plaqued? I have one growing both ways--sort of an informal experiment to see which does better. Thus far, it seems about equal.

    I had it on a plaque initially, but decided to pot it in a mixture of styrofoam pellets, leca and sphagnum moss. That's when it started to spike. I find the flowers very delicate, and overall an attractive plant.

    Lovely and well done. This is such a great species. Have you noticed the spicy fragrance in the day-time? I love its scent. I have found that this species really likes to dry off quickly after watering and responds well to air movement.

    Very nice. My mounted plant hates its mount ... been meaning to move it to a pot for quite a while now. Others that are potted I can't seem to slow down.

    I am growing three plants on a large mount in my vivarium, but my humidity is very high.

    That's lovely, they are not the easiest to make happy enough to bloom.

    I had several mounted plants that did well for a time, but went down hill. I thought it was probably my temperature. I bought another one a couple of years ago that was doing really well potted so I left it that way. I just noticed a very nice spike.

    Nice one, ezil.
    I used to grow mine in pot. It is important to pot the plant a bit higher and watch the condition of potting mix too. My plant was happy in pot but I decided to mount it on stick. It was not too happy on the mount at first but it is doing fine now.
