    Wonderful! One of the prettiest orchid flowers to my taste. Floral size in many orchids depends on culture; water availability and nutrient balance seem to be big players though medium pH/composition, temperatures, and light levels likely also play roles in some species. The easy answer, of course, is just that you're growing the plant extremely well.

    This species almost similar like Stanhopea the best you can use is basket or driftwood as the spike always going downward to show his beauty, just look at the whole plant a lots of room to accommodate the future spike thanks.
