    How gorgeous! I was checking mine when I moved plants yesterday and found it has a nice new lead growing. Hopefully mine will bloom out again this year as well.

    Bought a plant at the show in Singapore, hope it turns out as wonderful as this one, green (excuse the pun) with envy.

    Exotic!!!! At first glance, it looks like a hybrid between a cattleya and a Venus flytrap

    The smell happen during the day but more when the environment getting dark so basically over 24 hour very unique for this species for your information base on observation under the shade less light he refused to bloom but after I change to direct light no shade at all every new pseudobulb definitely will give me one flower, so highlight is very important determinant apart from fertilizer to induce flowering, make sure you need to acclimatise your plant first slowly to introduce to higher lights.
