    Hi Bruce
    That is one beautiful plant. The colour combo is awesome. I am really happy to see this as I was given a plant of it two days ago. Now I know what I mcan look forward to.
    I see that you have the plant in a slatted wooden basket, do you have any other Medium in the basket ?
    Well grown, congrats.

    Not really. Since all of the orchids I grow are in the same space, I water and feed everything once a week during the cooler months and twice a week during the warmer months.

    Cheers,

    Hi Angela,

    It is in a wire basket growing in a coconut fiber wrap. There is very little media.

    cheers,

    Ah ok, was just asking mainly because I have found them difficult to re-flower.

    Well done, Bruce!

    I have a teeny division I got in trade a couple years ago. Mine falls in the struggling to survive category, unfortunately. Just haven't figured out how to make it happy in my apt.
