Bloomed while I was away for the holidays. Thankfully, it stayed open long enough for me.

~1" Flowers appear on the end of each growth, yellow with brownish streaks. No fragrance.

a very nice little show! The leaves almost look like bamboo or some other kind of tropical grass from a distance.

Looks tall, is this grown outside?

The flowers have a nice lip. I also like the dried outer portions of the stems. Orchids can have such varied foliage, it is interesting as the flowers themselves.

Thanks for sharing.

The entire plant is about 20" tall. While each growth is about a foot tall, the new growths emerge up the stems like keikis, and contribute to this tall grassy look.

Currently, I'm growing this one indoors under a grow light.

I love it. I really enjoy a grassy orchid and this place be may be added to my wish list!

Well grown too. I like how you have it bundled and shaped. It is reminiscent of topiary.

DirtyCoconuts - I believe you can get this one from Andy's. Wish I snagged it during the sale... :P
