    Lovely. I like the large pouch. I have one that hasn't bloomed for me at all .
    Can you share your culture with us?

    Joan. I grow it in a plastic pot with bark mix. It is kept moist and fertilized a few times a month. It is in bright shade but near the higher end of brightness getting some late afternoon indirect sun. When I have a plant that will not bloom and looks healthy, I start gradually increasing the light level.

    outstanding flower, Ron! I have a large HK that keeps growing but just won't bloom despite 3 huge fat mature growths. I'm close to putting it next to my standard catts!

    I love the way the dorsal reflects the light in the picture.

    That is lovely! Not a huge paph grower --so I'll leave the expert opinion to others--but IMHO that is spectacular.

    We must admit that that this hybrid is beautiful: nice flower and shape, good colors and photo
