    I don't know why grandidierana takes precedence over filicornu, but I am just going to accept it. A lovely species with a 4" long spur.

    Lovely - thanks for sharing. What kind of light levels do you give this one?

    I am growing it in moderate shade along with some of the deciduous phalaenopsis species.

    Love it! They really have nice spurs don't they? I think it would make a great cross if one were inclined to create hybrids. Imagine that x a jumellea or a spidery aerangis or angraecum. :eek:

    MrB, I'm hoping for an outcross first (I try to limit the number of hybrids I make). I have another, smaller plant in early spike. How about you?

    My plant bloomed earlier in the year. It has never been a repeat bloomer so I don't think I can help. But maybe next time.

    MrB, do you dry yours in the winter?

    Thanks for the info Marni - mine has never bloomed but if it ever does, I will certainly save some pollen for you. I have no idea what the source of it is (I got it from a member sales table, one of those rare treasures that pops up once in a blue moon) so hopefully it's not a sibling...we don't want any consanguinity now do we! :)

    Marni, pretty much all my plants are somewhat to significantly drier in the winter either by less watering or lower humidity or both. But nothing too radical. ;)

    Bravíssima! :clap: Truly fabulous! (and correctly identified ;))

    Did you grow this cool 80°F/26.6°C max 50°F/10°C min?

    Jacob, yes it is in the cool house (which gets more to 85 and occassionally 90 in the summer) and gets a somewhat drier period in winter with just occassional misting. I just looked up the images of the another clone (in spike now) and it is the same species, different source. The other one has bloomed in July in previous years.

    Thank you for that, Marni. It's good news that your other plant is confirmed as the same species.
