    Naoki, yes more light is the better, they love fertilizer too in order to speed up the growth.

    Beautiful and orchid flowers you could wax poetic about. It's been on my wish list for months now. I am just waiting to find the 'right one'. May I ask what the fragrance is like Zain? Thanks in advance, AL.

    Thanks AL well I hope you will get one, they are so many variation all are very interesting with different size and shape of the flowers depending from where they come(Indochina),the smell of this species very unique could be pleasant in certain distances and toxic when very close to flower, I'm not very good in describing the perfume so sorry AL maybe somebody can help us.
