    Thank you Keith!

    My plant is going to bloom again!! Two more spikes are appearing, so I suppose the plant is quite happy with my growing conditions.
    I grow my orchids outside 24\7, so they receive plenty of air movement... we have very strong winds here all year around.I grow my plants in partial shade for we have very strong sun here.
    I really do love orchids of your region and PNG (especially Bulbophyllums). Thank you for your willingness to help. I'll be glad to ask you some questions, now and later. Could you tell me how long the flowers last? It is only 3-5 days here. I wonder if it is common for the species, or it is just my plant\my condition. for we have here very strong sun.
    Thanks again!

    Howdy Natali,

    I would just like to add a little bit to this topic... I live in far north queensland and this species or orchid is quite common in my local area. Here they will bloom 3-4 times in a season, and yeah the flowers last about 5 days. One thing I would recommend is maybe giving the plant some more root space. Their roots can travel literally meters along the tree. Anyway congrats on the pencil orchid, it's a beauty!

    Hi,
    thank you for your post. I apologize for the late response.
    My plant is in bloom again. Flowers opened on March 7th and they are still fresh. The scent is very powerful this time.
    Here are some pics
