    I'm thrilled to finally have these flowers. I grew a plant labeled as this for five years, got it to 35+ growths and finally bloomed it out after babying it constantly. It was mislabeled and I was very pissed. I managed to get a piece of a second plant a couple years ago and finally am able to verify it. This has about 25 or so growths with another 20 or so coming on now, as well as a dozen or so flowers coming, on a large plant I grow with bright light and a bit cooler in the summer. It really took off after I slipped the openwork black plastic 'vanda' basket snugly into a plastic pot, allowing the sphagnum it's growing in to stay wetter.
