    I was given this division a couple years ago by a fellow orchid society member. Since I like the big pseudobulb type orchids he's been sharing.

    great!
    I have had one for years, keeps growing but never a flower. I read the alba is harder to flower. Any growing tips?

    It took 3 years to get this division to bloom. I have another that is mounted but not blooming. Maybe next year. They get moved out of the greenhouse and take full sun except for about 2 hours (noon till 2pm shaded by a tree). They both produce nice pseudobulbs every year. In the fall they get placed on the south side of the greenhouse so they still get as much sun as possible. Water and fertilize like cattleyas.
