    A first bloom on this species for me. It was a rescue plant a couple of years ago. I've been growing it at 50F nights in moderately bright light. For reference, the spur is 7" long.

    So beautiful! One of my friends counts this fragrance among her most favourite of all orchids.

    So gorgeous. For whatever reason I have a lot of trouble keeping them alive. :clap:

    This is the first time I've tried it. Were you growing it potted or mounted?

    I've had two mounted. One came from Malala and may have succumbed to ants, can't recall. It was on cork. The other was on a plank. It still has a couple of lower leaves but the main stem went kaput. It is dead to me. I do have some hybrids with articulata so maybe they'll do better. :(

    MrB, I'm finding that the larger stature ones do much better for me potted. If you ever try another, you might consider going that way.

    Me too. I have articulata potted with very coarse (3/4") coconut husk chunks. Seems to like it fairly well.
