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.
very neat plant!
Absolutely gorgeous! Adding to wish list!
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.
Great species and photos!
