    It is a beauty!

    My Den Little Green Apples is like this. It has sent spikes out 4 times since January. So long lasting blooms for 10 months for me!

    Sriram, this is a beauty, I love this species!!

    I have been having problems keeping this species alive in the last couple of years, at one time I had both the white and pinkish ones that lasted for years and bloomed twice a year for me then for some reason I ended up killing them. I got another pink one this past show season but it does not look good right now but it is not dead so I might still have some luck in the spring.

    Sorry about that Jack. Can you post some pictures. I grow them in bright light under 50% shade cloth all through the season.

    Sriram, when both of these pictures were taken in May 2009 I had them hanging under a tree in the house I was in before where I live now. When I moved I had them under a Mango tree and did not survive their. The one I have now I used the old picture from 2009 and dated it when the one I bought this year bloomed, the old picture was better then what ended up blooming on the new one so I used the old picture for my picture files, thus the date of this year on the picture. The new one is under one of my shade houses with 70% aluminet shade cloth I have not noticed any new growth so far.

    From what I know about this species, it resents repotting and does not like the roots to be disturbed during its idle/non growing period. It seems to be enjoy quite a bit of bright light and I feed it 3 times a week with weakly solution of NPK. I see the roots in your plant to be bit dry (not clear in the image)
