    A cool grower that can be tricky. Fresh media and a lot of air movement seem to keep this species alive (sometimes barely) during the warmer months, but the plant recovers nicely in the cooler months.

    That dorsal is beautiful. What’s an accurate term to describe that striping?

    I would call it barring.

    Thanks all! I'm not sure if there is demand based on the cool growing requirements, but I have another clone in bloom as well and could try and set a pod?

    Love this one, the color and the barring are great. I would love to have it but I can't give up my int. plants and grow cool. Oh well, such is life.

    Unfortunately, it aborted during a warm spell ☹️. They are in bud so may try again.
