    Hi Maura that is the most difficult question for me to answer of course when I received the plants only one or 2 leaves than dropped off later could be the changing in weather and wet atmosphere that triggering bud. usually based on my observation leafless pseudobulb like this genera it's refused to bloom at all somehow mine is the other way round may be my luck.

    Very very nice! I believe this one is semi-deciduous...

    What is your current temperature range for this one, Zainal? Air movement? There are very little culture info on this species...currently I grow my little seedling under intermediate condition, slightly cooler in winter. Considered what mine looked like when I unpacked the plant, I must say it has been doing okay.

    Another thing, please let us know how long the flowers last. TIA

    Hi Tom the temperature daytime around 30 to 36 degree Celsius and night is around 24 seldom 23 unless heavy rain in the evening, air movement here are very strong especially during morning, I'm used totally small amount of sphagnum moss just to cover the based of the basket and thin layer over the roots.Right now the flowers is more than a week I will update later. For your information I saw the plants in nursery they blooms in a complete set of leaves and I dont think it is a deciduous, my plant just about 6 to 7 inches only. So far I already noticed young shoot already emerged from the old pseudobulb.Thanks.

    Suuuper nice, Zain!
    It could well be a panic bloom, i hope your plant will settle and grow well.
