It is blooming now with only 5 blooms and it used to have double that number of blooms some time ago.The plant also seems to be shrinking with every new p-bulb. I thought it had to with the the Cochlioda and Odontoglossum parents which are intermediate to cool plants. However if the S'pore plant is doing well then it must be due to my wrong/poor culture.
    SOrry, forgot to reply to this. The Z. Calico Gem bloom is big and robust. However, I have not seen any plant with more than 6 blooms.

    Cheers

    Thanks Vincent for the info. Most probably it's time to repot my plant. Hope that might 'resuscitate' it.
