    Such a little cutie! Pity it only blooms once a year. How long do the flowers typically last for you, Nora?

    I've seldom seen one with so much orange - very pretty. Ours needed the brightest light of all our orchids - do you find the same?

    The image given is really beautiful indeed. These orchids are mostly grown in a medium of fir bark with partial to full sun at their disposal. This orchid is an intermediate to its warm growing orchid cousin. You can water it approximately once a week.
