    Gilles, I have one that is now about 3 feet tall with a couple of pups at the base and I've never bloomed it. I am growing it in cattleya light. How large is yours and what are the conditions.

    I have mine on the ground of my greenhouse, so with cooler t° and in a really shady location!!
    I think that you maybe give to yours too much light and too much heat!!

    Thanks, Gilles. I was growing it in less light, but got tired of it taking up so much space on the bench. It was a small plant when I got it years ago. I have other conditions I can give it. How cool does it get where you have it? It certainly is darker foliage than mine.

    During winter, I give it a minimum of 11-12°C during nights and 16-17° during days.
    In summer, as it is on the floor and near from the fan, it never gets more than 30°!!
