    This one is a very old one, I have it since 12 or 15 years and in the past he almost died several times, but today it is really healthy and becomes bigger year after year!!

    Very nicely grown! It's a difficult hybrid often.

    Was this a mericlone?

    Does anyone know if this hybrid is available anywhere currently? I've really grown to love it from everyone's photographs but I can't seem to find it. Beautiful plant!!

    That is a beautiful plant and blooms. What is even more remarkable is that you have been growing for 12 years? I know orchids are long lived...nice to know they can grow for a long time.

    I think some of the botanical gardens in Europe still have plants that were collected from the wild in the 1800s. So yes, orchids can live a very long time.
