    Specifically, the non-yellow form. When does this bloom for folks here? What conditions? I have a decent size plant of it that is growing well, and I'd like to see it bloom.

    Mine didn't flower until it was 20+ growths. It has bloomed for me from April through October. Bright filtered sunlight, lots of water, sphag, winter lows of 55, summer highs of 90.

    EDIT - I forgot to mention that it never flowered for me under lights.

    Thanks Jon and Forrest. It's been growing I/W (65-85), plenty of water and high RH. It's growing ~18" from 234 watts of HO t5, so I won't hold out much hope for flowers this summer.
