    Gee.... I didn't know they will bloom themselves to death . Now, I know why my Psychopsis Kramerianum died. I can't remember how long it bloomed, but yes, once it started blooming it went on non-stop until the pbs and the flowers get smaller and has about 9 or 10 spikes when it died .

    Very nice Papillo . I'm still on the look out for an affordable one.
