    I've not grow this Sobralia before, but from the looks of the bloom, you must be doing something correct. Good growing.

    cheers,

    I have sobralia gentryi,sobralia mirabilis Madeira and sobralia xantoleuca. The growing tips I have found are mostly from people in warm climates growing these outside in the garden or in unheated greenhouses. Mine have been outdoors in a "summer house" all summer. They are nice plants to look at and I wonder how they would be as house plants near south facing windows. Would the humidity be too low in the house? I've only had them four months. The sobralia gentryi has bloomed. Any insight on growing these plants would sure be welcome!
