    Beautiful job on that Psychopsis. Can we see a pic of the whole plant? How old is the plant?

    I have a couple of them inside but I'm thinking of putting them on my deck for the summer. How much sun can it take?

    Sure, the last bud opened too. I owned it about 4+ years. I brought it at bloom size. The oldest spike is four years old 5.5 ft tall. Some of the leave are over 1 feet long. Two new spikes is coming make it a total of 7 spikes. It been sitting at that same spot ever since I got it. It got lot of sun in the morning. I water it until the little tray it sitting on fill up with water and when it dry I water it again.

    wow!!!!!!! GORGEOUS. I have never seen such a large plant, and so many blooms. Thanks for posting the whole plant. Now I have a better perspective of it. I wonder if my largest one will ever look like that. I have mine in S/H and they seem to adjust to that with no problem.

    Does it have a name or is it a NOID?
