Default gastrochilus japonicus

I got this as a precociously blooming seedling last year. I did not expect it to survive, but it did and has almost doubled in size in that time. It has 2 flower spikes!

Thanks everybody. The plant came from J&L, and is mounted on tree fern. Theirs is always of excellent quality, so I didn't have to disturb the roots. I grow it in a terrarium. In spring/summer between 20-30deg. C, and in winter, somewhat cooler. The hum. doesn't often fall <60%, and a little fan provides a good airflow. No fert. when not growing, and light between 1500 -2500 fc.s Hope that helps.
