    Tiny, bright purple blooms and an interesting plant. Spikes bloom multiple years. Intermediate. I have had a few leaves rot in the winter so I am going to start keeping it drier in the winter. I haven't had this one very long so I'm still learning.

    Definitely likes a dry or drier winter and no moss around the roots.

    Thanks Marni. Do you give it a dry rest like a Dendrobium or just cut back on the watering?
