    I spray it occasionally – not daily (although I should) – and fertilize, weakly, around once a month.

    It's outside, under a tree, where it gets bright shade, and heavily filtered sun.

    Don't know if that helps any. I wish I had more advice; I haven't had it for more than about six months.

    So, are you just trying to make the rest of us jealous, or is there some other evil intent by showing off all these beauties. All I've got in bloom is a couple of catts and a phrag and a Mtssa...and, oh, hmmmm guess maybe....well, NEVER MIND!

    No Kidding Sue - Great Growing!

    Bah! Sorry: typo.

    I meant to say six months, not six years.

    I'll go edit my previous post now.

    Oh, it's plodding along. I think it's done blooming 'till next summer, but it's putting out new growths. It seems prone to branching; I think it's got 4 or 5 growth points.

    Does it take alot of light? Im thinking about getting this one and mounting it at the top (near the light source) in my Orchidarium becuase of its growth habit. I don't want to burn it though.

    Wow, neat! I'm glad you pointed things out or I never would have appreciated it like I do now. I love how the flowers poke out from between the leaf growth like that. And I had no clue it was so tiny - it's beautiful!
