    It is not easy for me to make it bloom . This time it gives me a surprise. It blooms maybe in the same time with those in the Southern Hemisphere. Is it missing its homeland?

    My lobata tipo did the same last year. It bloomed in December in non mature pseudobulb with less flowers and smaller flowers. The weather is crazy, plants are crazy !
    Great color. There are always color breaks on the tepals ?

    How lovely! And I'm so glad for you that it decided to bloom! The whole plant looks extremely healthy.

    Thanks everyone for your comments!
    Hi Eric, thanks for your helpful explanation!
