    Just can not tell you how very excited I was when I saw the flower spike, I hardly waited to see its bloom. I bought this one 5 years ago. The blooms are fully opened now and have pleasant, light honey scent.

    It wants copious water and fertilizer while growing. When the bulbs are matured, I water less or practically stop watering. It has low lights as I have window faced to north, and temperature between 15-20 °C.

    Love this! Sounds like this orchid wants to be appreciated, making you wait years to show off

    Beautiful species. This one is on my list if I can give it enough light. Well grown.

    Congrats Branka. I can't get mine to give more than 5-6 flowers on each spike. I understand that my temps (25 -30 C) are not low enough during the blooming season to encourage the best blooming.
