    I have had this plant for a while and it never gave me any joy. It grows well but no blooms. I asked Jon how he blooms his and he said high light. I literally hung this thing on the roof of the GH (inside, not out) and a couple months later it has been blooming its but off. Thanks Jon.

    Interesting though, is that it never opens more than this. I think since it has been blooming I have seen over 50 flowers on it (I know, I have been thrilled), but they all don't open any more than this. Normally I might say humidity, but that is not likely in my conditions. If anyone has any ideas on how to resolve that let me know.

    Or perhaps I don't have elevatopunctatum and I have been holding it to the wrong standards.

    Anyway, here are the pics.

    Mine never really open much more than that, Forrest.

    Nicely captured.

    oh, maybe they are not. I had thought I had seen a picture of them fully open, similar to facetum or other similar type.

    I think people incorrectly attach the name "elevatopunctatum" to vinaceum sometimes.

    Love the spots! 50 flowers, huh? I'd say you've mastered its culture requirements!
