Very nice specimen!

I will also agree with the no media around the roots. This species likes high humidity, and a lot of drying out time. Mine is about to bloom, which is usually triggered by a...

I wouldn't say that Liparis is closely linked with Tribe Epidendreae, which includes Cattleya, Laelia, Epidendrum, and other genera.
