    Thanks all for the comments! Kathi, I read on another thread about this plant, that it produced pretty reliably! So hopefully, it will do the same for the two of us! Shane, you have one of these also?

    Yes I do have one, it is true they do produce very reliably every year. My one grows outside under a mango tree in the back garden with ± 2hrs full am sun and the same in the late arfernoon. your plant looks very healthy and should flower like clockwork every year.

    Regards

    Shane.

    That is a great looking orchid, Jason! I can see how it 'commanded' your attention. WOW! So pretty.

    Cheers,

    Shane, do you water very heavily while in active growth? I have read here that bifoliate catt types need more water than others.

    Hi Jason, no more than the other catts, I give them a good drenching once a week and feed about an hour later and will mist every other day in the week. They are potted in medium pine bark (about 12mm) so they are fairly well drained.
