    This is the correct spelling btw - two "e"s together. An African decidous terrestrial - drops its leaves after the bulbs are made up and requires a very dry but warm rest for maybe 6 months. When the new growths appear it can be repotted - I missed it this time , and I won't risk it when the flower spikes appear, as they do quite soon.
    Very thin-leaved, which leads to a dilemma ; the thinner the leaves, the more easily they mark and burn, so most such orchids I grow without any or at least much feed. But in general terrestrials take much more - so which way to go ? I have had it right in the past and got tall spikes of 20 and 30 flowers, even branched spikes . But presently the pot is full of back bulbs - only the lead produces leaves, so then I split them up, and divide, and start all over ; maybe it takes a few years to get up to big bulbs which will give the sort of flowering I mention. Here I have put 4 clumps of bulbs in this 8 inch dwarf pot , probably last year, using Perlite. And as you can see only one growth is flowering albeit double spiked. Maybe I'll give it another year in this pot - I have another one or two pots of single bulbs floating about too , although I put several pots in our plant raffle at the Orchid Soc after the last divisions.
    But I do have it in mind to try using rockwool cubes and Perlite mix, and stand in a saucer of water - semi-hydro , as I am trying for my Thunias, Calanthes etc this year. Maybe I'll do that next year.
    These flowers about 3 inches in the north-south direction btw.

    Very neat orchid! I looked it up in Owiz, which suggests light of 2500-3000 fc, and weekly fertilizer at 1/4 - 1/2 strength. So, I guess I would fertilize it with my catts, if it were mine...
    Thanks for posting this--hadn't seen it before...lovely!

    WOW !! Looks gorgeous. From the culture requirements you mention, I think they will do fine in my greenhouse in India.
