This is just about the smallest orchid I grow bloom and plant size. The bloom is a little smaller than an American quarter. Last year I had 6 blooms on it and twice as many abort in small bud stage. This year I am only getting two blooms off it and again had buds abort. I grow it cool, on the dry side and with low light. I also have it in a dish of pebbles for extra humidity,which I just tried this year thinking it would help save the buds. I would appreciate any information on getting heavier bloom from it. I really like the color and complexity of the flower.
Thanks, Tom. Means alot coming from you
Congrats! They just die in my care.
The blooms are quite striking. Is this orchid on the temperamental side Bill? AL
I kill all too hot here.
This one is very lovely Bill!
I had one and I made everything to save it, but unfortunately I didn't make it. Really don't know what went wrong, but I think that was not in the best condition ever since I got it. I've heard it doesn't like misting but if someone mist it must be dried as soon as possible. It is an entermediate grower but I've heard it likes a little more cold and not quite bright light (slightly less than Phalaenopsis). I think they are very particular about watering...they wrinkle at the slightest drying out, so never let it go dry between watering.
I do hope that next year you will not have fallen buds
