    Very nice.. From what I can see, your plant does have purple coloration on the stems and leaves, which indicate sufficient light.

    Most Holcoglossum are highland species, and they need cold dry winter condition, yet birght light to grow and bloom to optimum. This is sometime hard to achieve in greenhouse condition due to heat build up. Hol. wangii might be the only specie that can tolerate warmer condition and still able to bloom nicely.
