    I have this psychopsis and it really is an easy one to grow and very rewarding with the constant blooming. Does anyone know the purpose of the shape of the blossom? It looks like a bug or a butterfly which must serve a purpose in the wild, right?

    I have this one, too! It is so gorgeous. I have been reading that you are not able to repot this type of an orchid since they continue to bloom. Is this accurate information? Mine is about 3 ft tall. It lost a bloom a couple of days ago and there is a bud ready to open. (I can hardly wait.) I don't like the medium it is in. It appears to be very thick and hard, almost like dirt. I know that can't be right but I don't know what it is planted in. The pot is very small, too, about three inches.

    I bought one for a song at the London show not long ago. On the way home the half-developed spike somehow got snapped off near its base. Almost instantly it started to rebud as you might expect to see with a Phalaenopsis. By now it has made up for all the lost growth (about six inches); only difference is it is somewhat sturdier and stronger! I await blooming with pleasant anticipation. (When I saw my first Oncidium papilio, as it was then, at Chelsea I could hardly breathe for amazement- and now I am about to have my own. Well it's about time too!

    From my experiencel I can say: if it needs repotting, it needs repotting- sometimes even in flower if you have no other choice. Fortune favours the bold and most orchids are far more resilient then people imagine. Think about the life of an epipyitic plant- it has to be tough. However I hear that some Angraecums are resentful of disturbance- they would be an exception.

    WAIT FOR MORE EXPERIENCED FRIENDS TO GIVE THEIR ADVICE HERE... I am only me!
