I have one, but I have to say that this year my silvana didn't bloom (usually in January for me).

This photo is from 2011:

At 2011 I didn't write everything about my plants like I do nowadays. But you can find useful information here: IOSPE PHOTOS - Aspasia silvana

yes, I looked at the IOSPE reference and at Ecuagenera's website and at the OrchidWiz/Baker data.
My problem is that I tried the rest period, but growth did not stop and I had in fact crinkled leaves developing because of reduced watering. It didn't want a rest period, and it didn't flower. I will post a photo tomorrow. I am interested too in exactly where the flowers emerge from.

Well, to be honest with you, I never did the rest period and the flowers keep coming.

In this one I don't use fertilizer. I only keep it into my greenhouse (50% luminosity) with some humidity in the air by the little lake inside it. It works for me, but certainly my enviroment is different than yours.

Some of my friends have a flowering problem with Aspasias. I have one that don't bloom every year too. It's not an easy species. But your plant is looks great. Keep looking between the leaves for some spike: January probably is the month of bloom!
