    Default Epicat. Rene Marques 'Flame Thrower'

    One of my very favorite orchids is finally blooming. I have had it for two years and have had two sheaths dry up on me. Finally this one made it and I was unaware that it was even there untill the buds all of a sudden appeared.

    Thanks and I agree that the color combination is stunning. I am hoping to find 'Tyler' at one of the two orchid shows i will be attending over the next two weeks.

    Very nice, Bill! I'm still waiting for someone to hybridize a mini version -- these just way too tall for me.

    Beautiful flowers.
    Mine is nowhere as nice.
    How tall is your plant and what media?
    I'd like to try and copy yours.

    plant is about 10 inches tall and has 5 canes/growths. I have it in a 4 inch clay pot and grow it in medium sized bark mix.

    Thanks.
    That's how mine is planted.
    Your lighting or humidity must be better than mine.
