Default B. tentaculiferum

I was gifted with this orchid, but told it probably wouldn't survive, as it had no leaves and some mechanical damage. I was looking at it yesterday and couldn't believe my eyes, two new growths!!! It looks like it may pull through after all and I'm so happy because this is an orchid that's on my list. The fact that I received it as an underdog makes me like it even more.

Thank you! I've researched what it needs culturally and so far it seems to appreciate my efforts.
