    I'd be happy if anyone is willing to trade or sell a division of this orchid or tell me a source that sells it. Thanks ;)

    Since you live in PR...What is your growing condition?

    Summer (june - october in PR) temps can go normally from 85 - 90F during the day and from 80 - 85 during the night but if there is a trough or low atmospheric pressure during the summer the temps can go from 70 - 80 during the day and 65 - 75 during the night, on winter and spring ( november - may in PR) temps can range from 70 - 85 during the day and 58 - 70 during the night and combined with all of this there is high humidity and good air movement through all the year where I live.

    For 5 months of the year, constant 85-90F, (perhaps higher sometimes?) is a bit too much for this species IMO, but someone in Queens NY has been growing this species outside in the yard for the warmer months(I am still trying to verify the culture info from this guy, so far no answer yet). I grow mine I/C. Max. temperature in the summer is 73F.

    For the source, you may check with J&L Orchids or Andy's Orchids but I don't know if they ship plants to PR though. The chance to get a division of this species from a hobby grower is very remote.

    I already checked J&L Orchids & Andy's Orchids and they dont have it :( ....it is true that its warm and I could say hot on the out side of my house but the thing is that I have an old Mangifera indica and most of my orchids that require heavy shade are under this tree and I can say that its a lot cooler that I even have my kefersteinias and lepanthes including my Dendrobium victoria reginae under it and they are all doing well ;).....thanks for the info.
