    Very nice!
    How big is your largest leaf? I'm not sure if mine's blooming sized, yet...

    Gorgeous! I have one with a tiny nub of a spike but it seems ages away from doing that. Do you reduce water a lot during winter with yours?

    Nice, Tom. Last year I inherited a few that were in very bad shape. Two are blooming now and I was wondering why the foliage hadn't plumped up, but now I see yours has the same slightly wrinkled look. Does anyone know if it is always like this?

    "...slightly wrinkled look. Does anyone know if it is always like this?"

    Fred, in Cultivated Angraecoid Orchids of Madagascar says "The older leaves display a shriveled or crinkled effect, and even the new ones are slightly rough."

    Thanks!

    I only reduce the watering a little for this species.

    Marni, Dale has answered your question. Mine was not wrinkled at all when I bought it(in seedling bark mix), then all the old leaves became wrinkled after I mounted it on the stick. The new leaves on mine also look a little bit wrinkled.
