    I guess this one is making up for all the previous seasons that it did not bloom.

    It has three open flowers on one pseudobulb and two buds starting to open on another pseudobulb.

    It has a very heavy fragrance. No light "feeler" scents. It just goes straight to the point and punches you with the solid heavy perfume.

    That is an 8-inch wood basket, to give you an idea of how large the plant and flowers are.

    I hope you like it.

    I have this one and it's never bloomed for me in 5 yrs.! Must be doing something wrong. Yours is gorgeous. Congrats.

    Thanks
    If it is not blooming, it needs more light.

    I got a better response from this plant when I moved it to the 4500fc-5500fc area. The other catts in my collection are satisfied with as little as 3500fc.

    I guess the bigger catts are simply light hogs.

    Does temperature drop have a say too?
