    The color very intense so beautiful I think one of the best clone.

    This is a beautiful plant! I have one in bloom as well but it doesn't look nearly as nice! It's a large plant with crowded growths and I have nowhere to hang it for display...your photo may well have convinced me to divide the monster and pot some smaller pieces up! What light does yours get? My spikes are a bit shorter and I'm wondering if a bit less light might do the trick to lengthen them a bit.

    Thanks, all.

    cakedaddy, I have it growing with cattleyas, dendrobiums and multifloral paphiopedilum. I do not think you have to divide your plant, just up the light and feed more. They are very hungry plants.

    I am getting TONS of blooms but the spikes arent so long...they just don't display so well. I am growing under lights. Maybe I should keep the plant a little further from them so the spikes elongate more?

    I see. I think moving it to a shadier spot may help.
