    Never saw this species before. Stunning flowers and incredibly intense lip! I am assuming that it needs a cool, dry rest.

    Thanks for comments!
    Hi Wade, yes it need cool and dry rest in winter. I just put them in my orchid shed in winter without heating. My problem is the stems are not long enough. Hope next year will be better.

    Nice! You have an impressive collection of orchids. Are species easily accessible in China?

    That is a very nice one! I would imagine it is giving off a lovely scent. Those are so nice. I need to try them again. I had tried back when I first started growing and seeing the ones on here lately make me want to try them again. So beautiful! Great job!

    Hi Lizgeo, this species was very seldom years ago. But now it is easily accessible in my city.
    Hi Connie, I grow them in small clay pots filled with moss. This species is worth trying.
