Very nice! Mine has hardly grown, let alone flowered. How much light are you giving it?

Mines in a NE facing square bay window so one side faces SE. The plant gets a healthy dose of morning sun, say about 6 hrs and then no direct light from about midday on.

I water every morning and use a 1litre hand mister/spray to water the plants. They get just enough to keep them moist

That light sounds like mine but, I'll try to up it. I grow it with my oncidiums.

Think of the yellow round bit as the head, the orange as the torso and the lower two white bits as the legs!

And what is the name of that bit????

My Zygopetalum Adelaide Park has given me 4 little blooms. This plant throws a short spike so it's amazing flowers can get a little lost amongst the leaves.

But I just love the green flowers!

My Zygopetalum Happy Hour has snuck two little buds out while I wasn't looking!
