    Here is a first time bloomer that I got this in a trade this spring. The spike had 8-9 buds on it but my wife broke the spike and only one survived :( This plant is mounted on a piece of drift wood. It is grown warm and gets full morning sun then bright light the rest of the day. I water it daily in the summer and every other day in the winter.

    Another nice one, Tom. Your poor wife - did you forgive her? I know my husband said to me today, after I planted my ass in the middle of 75+ blooming growths of Epidendrum, "thank god you did that, and not me." Nice, huh? At least if he'd done it, I could be assured of a replacement plant.
