    Nice one Tom.

    neat species. I really want to like this one more than I do though, for some reason.

    That is nice Tom...I was looking at one of this genus yesterday at Parkside, not sure if it was this exact one or not but I will have to remember this picture next time I head to Parkside (in a month or so ;))

    Thanks!

    I don't know, Dawn because I don't know that much of your growing condition. I grow it I/C (more on the "Edit: Cool" side), medium light and daily watering.

    Dawn, Petite Plaisance used to grow this in their intermediate house and it was HUGE. It does come from a wide range of elevations and I think is pretty adaptable.

    Well, I can send you a couple of cuttings for you to try. If you kill it, you can blame it on Marni:poke:

    I can handle it, I'm used to being responsible for the death of many orchids.
