Not everyone's "cuppa tea" but always been a favorite. Had one years ago that bloomed well for me and did well for a couple years then up and died. Never did figure out why. Got this one last February. Currently surprised me with some blooms. This is one of the few orchids I bought not caring what the flowers would be like. I simply liked the architecture of the plant.

Pretty! I have a Max. elatior, which has a similar growth habit (upright) and blooms along the stems. On elatior the leaves are closer together. They are unusual and attractive.

Very nice! I like the growth habit, too...a little bit like a mashup of some of my Angraecums.
I decorate in green!

I like it! Even aside from the flowers, which are quite nice, I find the foliage to be interesting and attractive.
