medusae in full bloom. The fragrance is a bit much with this many flowers.

Absolutely stunning! That’s one massive and beautifully grown medusea

How big are the leaves on yours? I’m trying to get an idea of how far mine from being blooming size. Do you keep yours in fairly bright light?

Thumbs up

Just fell off the chair! Amazing...and I never use this overused word. Is it growing outside on the tree? Age of plant? I've 2 small plants which have not bloomed yet but see potential.

THAT is impressive! Would stand a good chance of getting "Best in Show" at an orchid show, I imagine. (But what a pain in the arse to transport, it could be!)

Leaves are 6-9 inches long. It hangs in a tree and gets a fair amount of light. I've read that they can take quite a bit. Mine also dries out--not on purpose!

It is growing in a saucer, hanging in a money tree (dracaena). It gets a fair amount of light. It is about 5 years old. I have taken cuttings off it to share. I have another plant about the same size. It bloomed while I was away so no photos of it.

Don't know about best in show but nice to hear that others are impressed! It would be a pain to transport, I agree.
