I was surprised how big these need to get before they bloom. Last year the pseudobulbs were 12" tall and it never flowered. This year they're 15" tall and it finally flowered for the first time. I'm hoping it will have more flowers when it gets larger. I've had this orchid for three years.

I gave up on these because of the height but I drool for them. This one is a beauty!
