    Wow! I loved it. Could someone tell me more about this orchids. where did they come from? I googled some places here in Brasil and could not find anything about, just that it likes warm and humidity.
    Could it be happy near the beach? I'd really like to have one.

    Rosalia, Grammatophyllum is a Southeast Asian genus. There are 12 recorded species in the genus, and the Philippines has 8 species, 6 of which are probably not found anywhere else.

    That is why you don't see it in your neck of the woods.

    thanks nelson for the info, didnt know we had so many species here!

    @rosalia,
    plenty of the gramma's here are grown in resorts nearby beaches, mounted on coconut palm trees in full sun.
    wish you good luck in getting one of those plants!

    I realy like your Gramm Wallissi, i hope i could get one of that.
    Im just wondering, according to some website, Gramm needs to have lots of backbulbs to induce flowering.
    In your pic it doesnt much have backbulb and it blooms! :-)
