    Looks very healthy but could be just too much nitrogen in the fertilizer?

    I think perhaps it's better to just use a 20-20-20 fertilizer year round and forget about high N and high K.

    I used to start my rest period at the end of November. Keeping them cool and dry in a high light location

    I'd go with clay. Looks like a nice hunk of plant! Hope it blooms for you.

    Well end of March I repotted it into a clay pot (11" I think, but I'm not sure). I have it in full sun under 70% shade cloth since the last few weeks and here's the result

    That looks like you've had it awhile. Orchids like that become old friends. Very happy for you, Ruby, and looking forward to the flowers.

    the dry rest period is important for kingianum, i have not researched the others myself, but kingianum is known to have drastic differences in blooming by altering the winter care. too much water in winter = few or no flowers and tons of keikis. i have read people saying dry from end of october to february, but this year i went more from mid-december to march, as that coincides more with my natural cold weather outdoors. a good 3 months or so if very infrequent watering. like once a month is ok. the stems will get kind of thin, but the plant rebounds and blooms like crazy.

    I think I bought it last year in March, but it could by all means have been the year before. I can't find where I posted it for the first time to see what date it was.

    Next winter I'll do the same. Cool dry rest from December to March when temperatures start to rise. How about light during this period? The place where I can have it protected from rain gets full morning sun, but I guess that will be OK, won't it?
