    It looks very healthy. I love Stanhopeas, besides their strange flowering habit, I find the leaves and pseudobulbs very attractive. I had one about the same size when I was living in Mauritius, but since I have moved and growing most of my orchids indoors, can't afford one, though I'm really tempted at times to get a small seedling ....
