    This one bloomed today. I really loved the way the lip literally flicked around when the wind blows.

    I must thank the owner of the nursery to sell me one of his collection with already a flower stalk.

    This is a cool loving bulbo. Forme, it prefers high air movement and less damp than usual bulbos. From what I learn from friends, it needs a temperature spike to trigger flowering.

    Tomorrow, I'll take a video tomorrow to see if i can capture the movement of the lips.
