    Nicely done Zain.

    I bought a Paraphalaenopsis labukensis from Ooi Leng Sun Orchids back in 2008 at the Redland Orchid Festival that has not bloomed for me yet. The last I saw them I asked about how to get this to bloom and they suggested more sunlight as I had it in a shaded area since then I have had it getting a little more sun but still no blooms, one of the pencil like leafs is about e feet long.

    That has leaves like an oncidium or bulbophylum. Long thin leaves often signify higher sun needs. Mind if you say how big the plant gets? like how long the leaves are, and what the radius or diameter of the flower is?

    Jack I noticed labukensis is very odd I had the above plant for the past 4 months willing to reward me his beauties, I had labukensis for more then 8 months so far got sign of spikes but not progress. My plants 3 of them more then 3 feet and the other 2 more then 5 feet. I think I need to wait first below is the photos.

    Out of the 4 species relatively the laycockii leaves is bigger and looks very tough the leave may reach up to 4 feet from the wild that I saw in one of the nursery here. The natural spread of the individual flower about 2.5 to 3 inches.
    For the labukensis the leaves is the longest more than 5 feet you can refer the above photos.
    For the sepertilingua and denervii the leaves just about 2 to 3 feet only.Tq Katy.

    Zain, I just noticed that I hit the "e" key instead of the 3 for how long mine is. If yours are 5 feet and those are some long leaves I guess I have a ways to go. Thanks for the pictures!!
