Default Phrag. longifolium first bloom

I have recently gotten into Phragmipediums and have been trying my hand with them. I'm very proud to share a plant that just opened up for me.

Last year I bought a Phrag. longifolium var. hincksianum from Orchids Limited, it's been growing well and just spiked. This it's first bloom, the petals pull back a bit so getting an accurate picture has been a challenge. Natural spread is 7" and I'm pretty pleased with the colour (the petals are a bit more purple/fuchsia than the pics show).

The most recent growths have a leafspan of 30+ inches each with a couple new growths emerging. I'm looking forward to seeing how the flowers/plant grow as it matures.

One question I have is; What separates Phrag. longifolium var. hincksianum from the typical Phrag. longifolium?

Any advice or tips on growing Phrags are also welcome. For background, I'm in Hawaii with Warm-Intermediate conditions, try to use rain water for my phrags, grow them in S/H and use weak K-lite fairly regularly.

I think the variety means that it had been awarded so they gave it a name.

So pretty are the pedals getting longer now.
