Lovely species, Ron. Mine(normal variety like yours) is in bloom now also but the variegated variety still doesn't have a bud yet.

I am growing this aswell, at 20C degrees and it is very shady way at the bottom of my tank.

It's engulfing its mount slowly and threw up some blooms a week ago

I just love this one. Twice last year I chickened out of buying one, once with an online order I was making and a second time when I saw one at a show.

Great pictures, love the real close up on your blog.

Theyre very easy once you get it right, i grow them on the "warm" side, they are supposed to be cool species but mine are doing great at 20C.

Very forgiving, all you need to provide is ample water and low light, and of course as cool as possible. However the water will help keep it cool.

Mine is way at the bottom of my tank and getting constant moist from the mister or water dripping from the plants above onto it. There is a slight layer of moss covering it and it is starting to become a small bush.

I noticed that the bulbs are becoming a bit shorter, probably because it is a bit warmer than supposed.
