You've probably heard the story of the older the orchid, the bigger and better the blooms. It's true to a certain extent, but definitely so for habebaria.
My medusa - first photo. These renew each year and each year they have had better, taller spikes. This year looks like they'll be better than last year.
Habenaria radiata - 2nd year of cultivation and they are definitely better than last year too.
My lindleyana is still dormant but the bulb is 3x the size of last year's.

Woo Hoo! Such a satisfying feeling when you see that new growth! What winter conditions are you giving them?

Medusa and lindleyana - unpot, leave at room temp -70f. No water.
Radiata - store in fridge in sphagnum.
For all - pot up when new growth starts.
