    Hi,

    I am having a hard time with this species, since it's more of an highlander, hence it has only 1 flower on a recently purchased cutting.

    Cheers!

    Yes, if high humidity and cooler temps are provided, than better mounted.

    I am coming to the conclusion that this is true of so many orchids - so that it seems that I mount more than I repot, but I am beginningto have empty bench space, but am runningout of hanging space !
