    Oh lovely, lovely,lovely - and so well grown. I have a couple of plants, which I have managed to flower, but only one spike of a couple of flowers - mine is in a pot, as I am not good with mounts. But these are magnificent - I'll offer my right arm in exchange... ha-ha.
    Can I ask - do you rest this ? Or grow continuously ?

    Thanks Geoff.

    I do give it a serious rest from the end of November till the middle of March when I give it water every two weeks at most. The pseudobulbs will just start to shrivel. I don't have the possibility to get below ~16 deg C (around 60 deg F) but that seems to suffice. I have it hanging close to the glass and I guess that lowers the temperature a couple of degrees further.

    So nice. Had this one on my list for some time. Maybe after I cull another plant or two! Yours is amazing.

    Thanks Robb!
    Get one when you come across a plant. They can be difficult to get hold of.

    Probably the best flowering of this I've ever seen. Also a favourite of mine, a real cracker..
