    Great blooming. Mine never has very many flowers. What are your growing conditions for this plant. Mine is in bight light and in a cool house with temps down to 45 and in the summer up to 80.

    Judy, there are two spikes on that plant. One has four flowers and the other has seven flowers and two buds. I grow it outside during the warmer months, temperature range is 50-90+F depends on the season. Then I grow it under light for the colder months in the basement. The temperature range for those colder months is 55-70F, for a month or so, the day time temperature can be just in the low 60s. Light is bright all the time, 2500FC to 3000FC. I let the plant dry out slightly between waterings (I normally keep it even drier during the colder months but not for a long peroid of time).

    Thank you Tom, I think I may move mine into my intermediate greenhouse. I'll let you know how it does.
