    I started with a couple of seedlings and they are starting to get up to a size where I am looking forward to each blooming. Each blooming is better than the last and I can see the potential for a great specimen plant. Formerly known as Ascocentrum ampulaceum alba. I am happy to have these in flask and ready to come out.

    Very nice! I like the contrasting little face in the center of each bloom. What conditions are you growing this one?

    I'm growing it warm with almost daily watering in moderately bright light.

    I have 2 different pinks and one pink-orange individual, i grow it hot and humid and bright. Lots of water and air flow so they dry fast they don't like being wet.
