    Default Sobralia rosea anyone?? when will mine bloom?

    Hello friends, I got this Sobralia rosea in 2009 as a small plant about 8-10 inches reed growths. In the past 3 years it has grown very nicely, now growths reaching about 5 ft in height, but no blooms yet. Does any member have ideas as to what might be wrong, because I have already seen pictures of plants about 2 ft tall blooming.

    Here is the pic. of the plant, standing tall with my Mokaras.

    Thanks Connie, I also hope it blooms soon, from what I read, it is a sequential bloomer, with individual blooms lasting just a day !
