    I love this plant. Bought it from Andy about 10 years ago. From the top of the mount to the bottom of the plant is 43". Intermediate grower or maybe cool-intermediate in my greenhouse with year round water.

    That's outstanding.

    How often is it watered?

    A very pretty Schoenorchis! I like the look of the plant too.
    I got one last spring and the growths are about 6-7" long. Do you think that is blooming size? How much light are you giving to your plant? Thanks.

    That's awesome, Marni! I think I'm beginning to hate you a little... :evil:

    That should be able to bloom but it might take another year. When I've tried others, they don't bloom until they have been established for awhile. Moderately bright light. It is hanging between a couple of bulbophyllums (cootesii, which blooms and something else) but just below that is a Dracula species doing well.

    That's OK, just don't put a hex on my specimen plants.

    Don't worry, I don't put anything out that may come back on me. I'm not a witch (though some would disagree) but I do subscribe to the addage that anything you cast out, comes back on you times three.

    Thanks, friends. I'm hoping this will hold for 2 weeks for our exhibit in San Francisco.
