Thanks for the kind comments. I'm the type of person to over, over water everything... and it's difficult to grow plants that need a rest period. I'll try my best to hold back my temptation to water.

I now grow it in my yard and it blooms every year.
In fact, it has just finished blooming in spite of the effects from the eruption, no pics though.
Alaska must be difficult to flower any orchid! I hope things are well and blooming in Hawaii.

A suggestion... when it is time to not water, put a deli container or other clear plastic container over the plant (so that it continues to get light). When you water everything around it, will stay dry. (A little umbrella.)

Thanks or the suggestion - smart and simple! I'll try it out this winter.
