    Bought this as 2 bulb plant in a pot for 5GBP on little orchid display, quickly got something I thought will be inflorescence, but it get longer and longer and now with few extra plants had my first flower ;-)

    Very clever accommodation of the species growing habit on the stick!

    I have never seen anything like it! This is its natural growth habit?!

    Piotr, I have had one of these for about 2 years now. It has grown very fast and I stole your idea of using a stick for it to climb on. However, mine hasn't bloomed yet. Do you give it any cultural treatment to get it to flower?
