    This is the first bloom for me, I think the second for the plant. My very first slipper orchid.

    Thank you
    I noticed today she's fading I think these ones are the most depressing when they fade. But there's new growth already, so I'm looking forward to another bloom in about 6 months - or at least that's what the grower told me!

    I can't take credit for this bloom, it was in bud when I bought it. Cross your fingers I get it to bloom again! Best of luck with yours from what I know they need lots of light but mostly the same conditions as phals. Maybe an expert can chime in here
