    Cool growing species. This species has many color forms and the flowers are very long lasting(up to 10 months).

    Is this orchid hard to grow? How big is the first plant?

    As long as you can keep it on the cool side and water it with good water, it should do well for you.

    The first plant is about 4"X5", 2" tall, here is the whole plant shot(some of the flowers are not fully developed yet):

    Gosh these are beautiful! (The first and the last plant shown). They remind me of something out of The Wizard Of Oz. By size they are Munchkins, by every other aspect they are magical. AL

    Fantastic cultivation/ care Tom and your photography is amazing. Love the middle photo with the pastel yellow colour. Makes all the hours of patience so worth it!

    keep it on the cool side, does it mean we cannot plant it in our country ( tropical climate)? Your flowers are so lovely. I like it!!!
