Nice lavender blush in that one.
It has been barely noticable in some I've seen lately.

Very pretty and nicely grown! I wish I had more space to grow larger orchids like this one!

Yummy. This would compliment my chrysotoxum to a T! Your plant is wonderful.

It's extremely tempting to get one! What are the winter requirements for this species in terms of light/temps/watering?

Look up the species in section Densiflora. They vary in size from small to medium-large. They come from monsoonal climates but different species get/need differing degrees of cold in winter. Most do prefer higher light and at least some water in winter. Withholding fertilizer is important.

Ecuagenera sells a number of Densiflora species.

Fred Clarke at SVO wrote this on the Web site about Den. aggregatum/lindleyi, though it is no longer there:
"These are so floriferous, and well-grown plants produce many inflorescences with 20-25 flowers each in bright yellow resembling golden coins. For best plant culture, it's important to understand and apply a seasonal wet/dry pattern. Water almost every day from April through November, then reduce watering to about once every two weeks in December through May. With proper care, these will quickly grow into specimens with thousands of flowers in March and April."

Beautiful bloom!!
farmeri can be kept manageable for many years.
My farmeri, now split, in 3 had stayed in a 1 quart soup plastic container for almost 10 years and flourished in a semi hydroponic environment. Several times it bloomed with cascading curtains of flowers all around the pot, no foliage visible through the flowers.

Browsing through some older pics I have one of a massive den farmeri from the Tamiami orchid festival prior to covid shutdown, possibly 2019, am posting it just to give an example of how big a specimen it can get. this plant was hanging on a coat cart and am not sure how it got to the show, possibly in a U-haul moving van, hope no one takes offense to this post and I apologize if they do....the full size picture is spectacular, more so it seems the timing of the bloom was spot on, lucky.

It's lovely, if it just wasn't pendant (never been much for baskets indoors).
