    Congrats Gabriela.! I have one of these, have had it for about a year. It is struggling to stay alive, has never bloomed.

    What medium are you using to grow it in?
    The flower is very interestingly beautiful.

    Hi Angela, the credit for booming does not go to me. I just bought the little cutie today at an orchid show. It was the only species they had. It is growing in regular bark and seames to be kept pretty dry. I loved the look of the bloom as it was different then usual Dens.

    I have grown it in a pot with well draining medium but with the pendant nature of the plant, I eventually mounted it. I does prefer decreased water in the winter but prefers moist during growing season

    Angela, my plant is mounted, pendant, on the bark. I keep my plants like Ron, humid, not to much sunshine and can see every year such beautiful flowers.
