    How gorgeous! White is not usually my favorite orchid color, but this one just looks so pure and beautiful. What is the scent like?

    It is wonderful! I have the red version...the fox tail orchid. I wondered if you could tell me what you did for that one to make it bloom. I am misting mine everyday and watering about once a week or twice. It is getting afternoon sun. What do you think? My plant is about the size of yours but I wonder if it will bloom or if I am not giving it what it needs to do so. Hope you can help. And I love the white color. You should take that one to a show if you like orchid shows.

    Beautiful, Cin! I love the way the flowers hang - reminds me of wisteria. One of my wish list is a rhyn. Great pic!

    I have my plant in the lathe house on the south side in almost full sun all day. I fertilize twice a month with dilute liquid fert and water several time a week depending on the temp and humidity. Don't do much special. Hope I help.

    Hmmm....it does help. I think I need to water more often for it and as far as sun goes I can try and move it to another window to see if it gets more sun. I am already fertilizing weekly, weakly so I think I am on track there.

    How long did it take to bloom out once you saw a spike?
