This adaptable species has a reputation for being easy to both grow and bloom. The flowers are large and very fragrant. Even though the coerulea and semi-alba varieties seem to have eclipsed the standard pink-flowered forms in popularity, I still think the classic version of this species is outstanding. But what I'm really pleased about is that the growth from last year that produced what I thought was a blind sheath decided to push a bud up through that same nearly dessicated sheath this year. So I'm glad I was too lazy to cut it off last winter.
I love the standard mossiaes too. It is a regular habit for this species to produce two pseudobulbs per year. Both will bloom next spring, the older one from a dry sheath, the younger one from a green one, which gives a load of flowers.
