    Thank you for liking. I haven't had it long enough to know, but if it is like Calanthe and Phaius there should be periods when they lose their leaves and remain dormant, particularly in the dry season here around Nov-Jan.

    Very nice clone, but good luck flowering it in lowlands hehe. I have one and it flowers every other year for me, but does not perform to its full potential, I think it likes it much cooler. Pune gets 3 months with night temperatures close to 10 oC.
