    These photographs look better than the orchid vendor pictures I have seen on the Internet. I love all that orange and that lip is incredible. AL

    Congratulations on your sucess with this guy. They are not the easiest to get to bloom and you have succeeded very well. Love the color of unicum and also the intereting shapes the plants develope into. Great job!

    I guess this is more just due to luck. I did hear that it's not an easy one to grow.
    I grow that at a south window with some shades. Winter time, I wait for the moss to dry out before I water and summer time, I water and fertilize more frequently. It's sitting in the open to below family room and I guess the 'coldness' during winter time in Calgary helps a lot.
