Thank you, Roberta. It's actually already in an 8-inch pot. I should have probably held the plant up to give a better sense of scale. But you're definitely correct: it's time to move it into a larger...

That's kind of what I'm afraid of--that it's not quite done growing to its full potential yet. Still, there are worse problems a hobbyist could have.

Thank you both for your comments!

That's a very well-grown plant--and, of course, the flowers aren't too bad either. :-) How is the scent of the blooms on this one?

I don't know whether it's normal or not. Perhaps it's just normal for your particular plant. But as long as it wants to put out more growths, you should encourage this behavior. Good luck.

Fantastic job you've done with your relatively new acquisitions. Can't wait to see the blooms. And they should be (I would think) nicely fragrant.

Yes, you're correct, Ray. It was the combination of Andrew and Benlate.

This February 1992 NYT article references Jones & Scully's troubles with Benlate. Andrew's arrival in the late summer of...

Beautiful blooms. But the picture of the pseudobulbs is, to me, more impressive. It's nice to see one of these grown as a big clump.

It's a pretty bloom, but to me it appears to perhaps be a hybrid of Laelia splendida. Can't be sure, however, since it's difficult to see details in the bloom. Are you able to post a larger photo?
