    Fascinating. I've never seen one before. Very pretty the way the spikes hang down, with the flowers on the ends. Thanks for the introduction to a new 'chid.

    How did I miss this before, silly jenn. This plant is fantastic. I am always searching for low light orchids. It looks like this may be one?

    Well, it's not a high light plant . . . but I wouldn't say it's a low light plant . . .

    You should start a thread over on the general culture forum! Give a list of your low-light plants (say, approx Phal levels?) and ask people what other plants they have that grow and bloom at around the same light levels.

    Oh, so I guess it didn't bloom in your AV lighting, oh well. That is a good idea, I may do that.
    It's a shame my current living situation has me in this dilemma. If my house were bigger, I would set-up a real grow area, but alas in this TINY house it is just not a possibility. I had to give away many of my plants when we moved Someday I will have a greenhouse...
