    Charming little plant
    In what kind of condition do you have it? I have mine in intermidiate but I doubt this is it... doesn't look quite happy.

    Thanks for your comments!

    @Branka: I grow mine mounted on a trunk in a little orchidarium. The orchidarium is behind a window, so they get daylight, but additional I light them with t5 fluorescent lamps. The temperature is warm over summer, in winter it is intermediate to cool. During winter I water only all 2-3 days. I think they need dry conditions (not humidity) combined with cool tempretures to bloom well. To grow well, water and feed them a lot over spring and summer.

    Stunning! After seeing your holcoglossums I wonder why I've not had them in my collection, though they come from our part of the world. Must try to get them.

    Could be difficult to grow them in Malaysia. They are found from 1200m to 2000m. But try it and keep us inform about your observations.
