    Hi, When photographed the plant was growing in eight parts perlite and one part peat. Since then I have changed all my plants over to pine bark as I found they didn't dry out quickly enough and some of the roots were dying on the back bulbs. Cattmad.

    Hi ischel1, surprisingly for such a lovely looking orchid it has very little fragrance. Thanks. Cattmad.

    Such a perfect arrangement of blooms on that compact plant. Well grown.
