    harvey, these do bloom on pretty small plants... if the bulb is about 2 inches tall, that is blooming size. the largest bulbs of mine are all under 3 inches. they need lots of light though, like cattleya light levels.

    The first pb on my plant has just shown itself and looks to be about 1/2" tall so far. A new growth is also happening.

    Here is what it looks like today. 1 Growth with pb, 1 new growth in progress.

    I love those new little growths. Sounds like this plant will try your patience, but rewards with the most incredible flowers.

    Can you tell me what mix you are using and a little more info on lighting and temps? I see it is in clay pot is that better than plastic?

    i had it in a 4" plastic pot with sphagnum moss for the first few years. it was ok, but i was not giving it enough light then. it is outside, so it gets bright shade. right now it is is mostly sphagnum moss and some tree fern fiber. i try not to let it dry out at all if possible. it likes the damp moss. my winter lows approach 40f at night. no frost here. we get some summer highs near 100f. but most of my summer is mild.

    I have this hybrid as well (but a different clone). It has dark blue-purple buds now and I'm looking forward to their opening. I have a weakness for all things with zygos in the background. Orchidwiz has the accepted name as Zygotoria now.
