    Got it in December so I don't take credit. These spikes appeared FAST - were not visible 3 weeks ago. I am guessing it will open up a bit more.

    Gorgeous Calvin. I have a comoroense and the spikes develop very fast as well.

    I really like this one, Calvin. Do they stay small? Is this species readily available in the U.S. market?

    Very pretty!

    I recently purchased one from Andy's. Mine is in spike, I can't wait - and Calvin's notes would indicate that I won't have to.

    I used to bloom mine very well every year. When I raised the temperature from 50-52 to 56F and about the same time remounted it, I no longer got blooms. After several years of foliage only I have moved it to a cooler greenhouse. I've had one flower since I moved it about 1 year ago, but not what I used to get.

    Congratulations, Calvin! Have you noticed the clove scent it has at dusk? Marvellous fragrance.

    I got one of mine from Andy's too, a few years back, and it has been a great plant now forming a nice clump. Marni, I'm growing mine cool too, 10°C/50°F min.

    I know that Mountain Orchids has sold divisions from time to time as well.

    I've got the same problem Marni, mine didnt bloom last year and I'm not sure its going to this year either. If it doesn't its getting moved somewhere else and I'll wait another year I suppose.

    Marni and Daniel, how much light are your plants receiving? Mine blooms reliably with 1500-2000 fc.

    Way more than that man! I was growing it in the unheated greenhouse and it got less light and dipped into the 40s often. That's my point of reference for where to move it to.

    It looks great! Mine blooms every year under 55-75F but I can't say it is a fast grower though.

    I would agree, Tom. And I think the 55 part helped mine bloom a bit better this year
