    Thank you.
    Not often seen, you're right. However, it's an easy grower in intermediate conditions (light and temperature) but quite a big plant.
    Unfortunately, the flowers last only one week.

    I see they need cool to warm temperatures, too bad they would look nice in my collection but not my environment! A real beauty!

    Jack, I grow it in the GH with my Cattleya but with less light. You should try it in Florida.
    Thank you all.
