    Thanks for your responses Paph! OMG Branka! another 'fickle' orchid!? aaaarrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I have the slightest fear, opinion and vision that this is going to be a troublesome one like the mule eared oncid physcopsis and if its anything to go by, so many on here have noted their frustrations with that one! If I can achieve your goal of happy and healthy with just an odd/ brief show of flowers then I will be pleased! I wonder if cold dry nights, warm sunny days and a slight amount of dew at dawn are its secret esp. with the alliance with cacti and the arid,desert connection??????

    Last year it flowered in May - well, this year, and it is flowering right now again. Only 2 flowers manage to open, the rest 5 or 6 just withered away, have no clue why...it looks like a happy, healthy plant.
    I'll keep my just the way it is, even thought your thinking about cacti is not bad, maybe you know what kind of cacti would be suitable, I guess not just anyone?




    So beautiful! I'm sorry it didn't bloom as well as it could have. At least you got to see some blooms. I just went to put it on my wish list, and found it was already there! LOL!
