    What an absolute beauty! So dainty, I just love the way they look like they are dancing on the wind.

    Mine was sending a spike in the Fall but got aborted. It sent another spike last month, also got aborted. Plant is too young, or humidity is too low? If I still can get flowers by the end of the year, this one is on the trade list.

    rotflmao You sound like me, Qing! If I have a plant that simply will not perform for me, I send it on to a new life with someone else. My space is at a premium and I can't afford to use it up with plants sitting around that won't grow and/or bloom. This Lou Sneary is nice, so I hope yours blooms for you.

    Lovely! In fact, it is one of my most favorite orchids!
    They could be tricky to bloom. Either not enough light or the temperature is not coolish enough (can't be too hot or too cold either!), or maybe the plant is not big enough yet.

    I have one too, that hasn't bloomed for me yet. I grow mine in a bonsai pot with coconut husk and chunks and sphag.

    Thanks, Hoa. I will give it one more year to try. I think too small might be the cause.
