    Beautiful paph there. Do you give it a rest period?
    I only have two brachysepalums, a Vanda M. Pearman and a niveum. I might see a niveum spike later this year.

    Nope, no rest period. It gets the same treatment as everything else in the GH. The only difference, this one grows very near the cool cell and stays damp all the time. It seems to like it. The foliage is beautiful and it blooms. See the next bud just below the open one?
