    Damn, that is what the flower actually looks like! Great close-up photo, Dale.

    I like that you planted it in a hapu'u basket, it's a nice idea for Oberonia.

    I just bought a plant of this today. Does the bloom cluster just keep lengthening? Mine is only about an inch or so long right now.

    Mine is struggling in a small pot of N.Z. Moss under 600 Fcs, high humidity and lots of prayers.
    Any advice to save this beauty?
    Thanks

    600 FC doesn't seem like very much light. I've had my plant for about 2 1/2 years and it's doing well with a minimum temperature of 62°F and maximum of 85°F. Slight air movement; bright filtered light; constant moisture at the roots.
