    Stop it right here Marni! This is not fair! I was glad to get 2 flowers of mine and to keep it alive..haha!
    This is insane and so skilled. I bow to your growing skills :)

    I will sit the rest of the day and worship the image and try to determine how to achieve the same result. So inspiring!

    I would like to see that! But I doubt that you will be able to SIT the hole day! You are way to creative and will very soon find some idéas to test and of you go. ;-)

    I know exactly how you feel. I grew this species for years just to finally get 1 flower! I even killed a selected clone trying to learn to grow it. My plants of this now get moderate to moderately bright summer light and near cattleya light in the winter. Daily water and fertilizer, good air movement and rapid drying.
