    I saw one of these years ago at the GNYOS Show (when they had a show). It's always been of on of my favorite orchids. Of course I have no way of growing it! Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know if the new leaf will grow bigger than the older one, but it is still growing.

    Interesting plant and it looks like it will be beautiful when the blossom is completely open. It must be nice to have a rambutan tree. I can only find them in one Asian market here and they are expensive. Thanks for the great pictures.

    Zain, could you take a look at my pictures?
    The new leaf is still much smaller than previous one, but a new growth has already appeared. Does it mean the young leaf will not develope any more, or it is still growing?
    Thanks!

    Natali, the new leaf already stop growing and begin to come out new growth which will increase and improve the size of the new leaf. It seem that this species already adapted to the new environment. Please give enough water and fertilizer to encourage the development of the new leaf. Dont let them dry. Good luck.

    Thank you Zain!
    I am afraid I fertilize my plant not as much as I should. I feed the plant about once a month with some organic fertilizer and every two weeks with a weak solution of Schultz orchid food (19-31-17) What do you think, is it enough for my plant or I should feed it more?
    Thanks again for your help!

    Natalie if possible try to get NPK ratio of 20:20:20 rather than 19-31-17. Yours inducing for flowering rather than growing . High P and K basically to induce flowering. Well I do believe when applying weak solution of fertilizer regularly may encourage the size of the pseudobulb as well as the leaf. Try to make it once a week. Continue organic fertilizer as schedule.

    Second thing, immediately after the leaf getting bigger be prepared for another medium or get the original plant to attach to a new medium. Do not allow the new leaf/ pseudobulb hanging on the air cause subsequent leaf will become smaller.
