    I agree - it IS a strange plant. The pbulbs on mine are jammed together so tightly, it's really hard to stake the inflorescences - and the really do need to be staked. Where the new growth is going to go, I have no idea whatsoever.

    Wow! That's a lot of buds. It looks like this orchid is a real over-achiever.

    Yes, Jeff - it's kind of crammed with them. The only issue I see is that the spikes are kind of at different stages, much like the orange mystery catt (which, by the way, this looks incredibly similar to), so by the time the 5th spike is blooming, the 1st is sort of on its way out. But that's a pretty luxurious problem to have in my experience!

    Don't know what my excuse for loving deep red flowers is then.

    Personally, I think the name is whimsically cute -- but then I have always been a big Peanuts fan.

    How tall is the vegetative portion of the plant?

    About 8 inched to the top of the bulb

    Great happens there Maura. They may not bloom all at once, but then the 'scenary' may last longer if the budds open in stages.................You know Act One, Act Two, Act Three, and so on! AL

    It is already happening, but in my state of trying to reorganize my apartment, I have sorely neglected my photos. I will remedy that soon, I promise.

    That's a characteristic of Enc. cordigera.

    So, Michael, what would you do in this situation? Will it grow better mounted, or in a basket?

    Looking at your plant, I personally would grow it in a pot; it hasn't inherited that characteristic from cordigera.
