    Flowers are about 1.25" wide. The flower cluster is two spikes from one pseudobulb. Lightly fragrant during the day.

    That's nice Marni. Do you have some culture tips?

    Clark, this is a small plant with fine roots and I gave up trying to grow it in a pot. Once the media starts to break down in goes down hill really fast. I have had better success growing it mounted with daily water, drying between waterings. 50F average minimum winter (occassionally 40, but rare), summer highs are usually 80, but on hot days that part of the greenhouse will go to 90 for brief times. Moderately bright light. I'm still not pleased with the way the plant looks, but it does bloom much better for me this way. I would love to get it to a robust little specimen.
