    Looks wonderful. Looking forward to seeing my piece flower again one day.
    Name now Trichoglottis atropurpurea, for interest sake.

    beautiful! Can you please share how you're growing it? Especially with respect to light/shade? TU!

    Nice Sheryl!
    I picked one of these up at Redland show this year that I had pre-ordered from an offshore vendor.
    Hoping I can get it to bloom by late May. Is yours a consistent summer bloomer?

    Thank you Carolyn! It hangs under an oak tree. It gets early morning full sun for a couple of hours then very filtered for a couple of hours after that then shade. I wish I could give it more filtered light throughout the day but it's not possible. It blooms every August.

    Thanks and that's great Leigh! Mine blooms every August. Since your further south, yours may bloom earlier. I'm pretty sure Jack's, whose in the Ft. Lauderdale area, blooms a little earlier.

    It is beautiful; I don't know anyone who has ever flowered one in UK. Occasionally dealers turn up ( from Taiwan or wherever) with one in full flower marked not for sale, and all we suckers queue up to buy them, but they are never seen again. I guess that for part of every year we are just too cold and dark.
    But it is nice to see that someone , somewhere, can make them flower.

    Thank you Geoff. Yes, the first year it flowered for me, there were at least a dozen flowers. Now over the past few years, I tend to just get three. But that's ok, I love the flowers!
