    Man, that color is really something else...beautiful! The plant-to-flower ratio is a bit much for my limited space, but if I had more room I'd be on that one in a heartbeat!

    Its like beauty and the beast. The plant itself is not much to look at, but the flower is spectacular. A lot of color in one bloom. AL

    Gorgeous flower! This is another I have no plans to ever try -- just gets too darned big.

    personally, this species is still somewhere on top on the most beautiful orchid!!!
    Zain, you may not give it enough light, i've seen Trichos here in nurseries growing next to Vandas, that is if humidity is high enough.
    since your plant is well grown, give it a try and cut the top of to mount it higher up on your trees.
