I love this one! I've just been admiring it on a vendor's website trying to talk myself out of buying yet another orchid! And then this turns up So it sounds like a good one to have?? Did you buy it from a Canadian vendor? Any special needs for it? Beautiful photos by the way.

Thank you Silken
I got it from a small Vendor from Vancouver-this Lady usally comes to sell at the Shows around here.
I am very happy with this one. But i dont know how your Set-up is. I grow it under Light by East Window and here comes the kicker- in SPAG.I guess the Lights from the Shelf underneath keeps it warm and makes it dry out in Time.It really loves the Spag-i dont know why.
I water once a Week when it gets warm and in Winter every 2 Weeks. I have it for 4 Years now
i need to re-pot soon-its growing almost over the Edge of the Pot-but i am really scared to re-pot. Because with me something always goes wrong and i would hate to have something happen to this one-i love this one a lot.
I forgot-it's also in a Clay Pot

Thanks for the info. I grow my Laelia tenebrosa in sphag in a clay pot and it thrives! So I know what you mean. Good luck with re-potting. I would wait till you see new roots developing.

Your'e welcome
That's the trouble - it's making new Roots allready and the next growth is starting again all while its blooming-so i guess i will -MAYBE-re-pot after the blooms are gone-or leave it for next Spring I am such a Chicken.
Last Time i just potted it up-all in a bigger Pot-so there was no trouble-but i think this Time it will need fresh Spag and that means disturbing all the roots to get the old stuff out.... Oh well-i need to do it.

This is a delightful flower, Monika!
It looks yummy like a wedding cake décor.
Such a happy healthy plant with the correct shade of green clean unblemished leaves; meaning you are giving it proper light with the robust roots trying to get out of the pot.

Thank you so much Bud
Just wish all of my Orchids look that nice-i had trouble with one of them-had to cut off a leaf-i put Cinnamon on the cut and did not noticed some fell on a leaf of a plant below-now i got 2 holes burned on the Leafs of that orchid

next time use cinnamon paste by adding a bit of water to the powder
the powder is tricky to use by itself.
