    BTW, the Ancistrochilus rothschildianus you helped me get has about 6 spikes on it this year!
    Congrats on the Ancistrochilus!

    When space is an issue...one needs to make decisions like that. I know my tastes changes over the years.

    It didn't drop it's leave so I'm considering snipping them off. Someone neglected to explain to mine that it's deciduous.
    I'm having a had time with space. I like what I have, and sadly, they are not making it easy on me by growing and blooming as they are supposed to.

    oppps...they are deciduous but when they maintain some leaves, I leave them. Mine doesn't drop all of it's leaves.
    Here is one that you might be able to squeeze into your space. It has been on my wish list for some time as well. Epidendrum secundum var. purpureum dwarf type

    I'm waiting to see how long the spikes are before making a decision. I don't want the blooms to be underneath and not visable!

    At this point even that will be difficult. I'm cramming a Cattleya Peckhaviensis (fragrance is important for me) into my under lights set up now. That is going to do it for that area.

    A little note on the pollinator for this guy---no night pollinator at all anymore from what I've read. This orchid is now predominantly a self pollinator, with cleistogamous flowers- which is when the flower never opens but sets fertile seed.

    Ron, is it a once a year bloomer? I haven't been able to find much info on it online.
