First bloom from what I got as a rootless little mess back in March. I'd say it has recovered quite well!

I'd say more important than the flower itself, (although, it is a beautiful flower)...

Nice little root growing underneath all those leaves and such.

What'd you do to save it? I got one recently with only a few short roots. How should I be caring for it?

Wonderful! Such an impressive flower.

As to growing it, roc, it likes cool temps, high humidity and lower light. I grow mine in a net pot in sphagnum.
