    WOW! I never imagined it could grow that big! Maybe in about 10 years mine will look like that..If I don't kill it in between. Thanks for posting.

    Unbelievable huge plant with nice horizontal lip. If I would get a plant like this on the judge table it would be hard not to award it with gold!

    Great show, Canh.

    OMG! They are so gorgeous. I now am convinced that I must get one ( or five) of them.

    Thank you for sharing.

    OHMYGAWD..! That's the largest specimen of this species I have ever seen... Just amazing! Most plants of this species exhibited in Malaysia only have 1-2 canes..

    I got one of these about a week and a half ago on Maura's Christmas orchid buying trip. Those are beautiful flowers and good photo's to boot.

    If you or anyone else can offer some culture advice, such as light requirements and any other culture tips I would be very much appreciative if you felt inclined to share with me.

    Thank you so very much as I am not sure how to best grow it. The tag says it like to be watered in the morning, but other than being slow growing (which I just leared above), I know very little about what to do with this plant. Oh, I forgot to mention that it is mounted on a small piece of wood with some spaghnum moss. It has very health roots and I mist it heavily as I can every day - not always in the morning, but alas it's watering just the same.

    Thanks for your time and information. I appreciate it.
