    Handheld, can not really catch the pinkish tone in the flower!

    Nice! How long did your blooms last? Mine were toast after a couple of days.

    This lightly pink flower has always sort of magic.

    Very nice , from the color of the leaves do you grow in pretty bright light?

    Yes Rita-mo
    I grow it in my orchidarium with 4*54W of T5, OSRAM LUMILUX DE LUX Daylight, 965. It gets 13000 lux that should be 1300 foot/cd for 12-14 hours a day. It has been growing under this light for about 10 month but has not jet adjusted to the light (gotten dark green leafs).
    We can discuss light in lenght but this is not the place! ;)
