    I got this last year in bloom, this year it has given me much bigger blooms then I got last year so I guess I did something right.

    Seems like better color this round too. Unless that is just due to the camera change.

    Thanks Yew-Sung! I had been told that my pictures had not been so good in the last couple of weeks due to my laziness so that has ended and I am back!

    Chris, I have two of this species and looking for more, they are so different which is what I am looking for these days!

    Thanks Karin, they are as tall as they are wide at 3 1/2 inches, much bigger then what was on the plant when I bought it last year.

    Harvey, it turns out that what I posted last year was miss-tagged and was not the negrensis. This one I got after my post as I also wanted this one and when I got it the blooms were on their way out and I did not post a picture.

    Amazing . You led me, Jack, to look at IOSPE , to find out a bit more about this genus which was just a name to me. To my surprise I find that it is bulbous, not one of these fan of leaves jobs like Huntleya, which I find so beautiful but quite un-growable ( by me, at least). I shall have to look out for plants on sale- not easy for South American orchids in Europe, apart from the obvious exceptions of Oncidium and Cattleya.
