    Yes Yew, it likes cooler temperatures, so I think that's a problem in Kedah.

    Thank you. It's the easiest to grow orchid species, along with Bletilla.

    I bought mine from a fellow society member. He has a bowl full of them with many blooms. I hope to get to that point with mine. I bought two of them just to speed things up! I like that it dies back to the Pseudo-bulb and then flowers and then grows leaves.
