    Another first time bloomer that I picked this up from Andy’s at the SEPOS show in March of this year. I had originally broken the first two spikes off a few weeks ago and thankfully it rewarded me with a couple more :) I grow this intermediate under lights and is kept moist.

    That would brighten my day, Tom. After the whole ass-crusher episode, and all...

    It's really not fun sitting on one of your orchids. Just in case any of you was thinking about trying it.

    That is awesome. I've considered buying this one since my growing conditions are mostly intermediate.

    Thanks for the plant pic, Tom. Not only are the flowers awesome, the floiage is pretty sweet as well.
