    nice tenebrosum, but the plant has not been brought to its full potential. tenebrosum are robust species, the bulb should be increasing in size as subsequent bulbs are form. IMHO and if it is my plant, it is time to repot after the flowering is over. some growers do it during the next growth season begins but it is time to stop feeding and watering
