    I'm assuming you have something nice to take its place?

    I couldn't tell you off the top of my head. I can go dig around through some books and get back with you though.

    As for culture tips, Chris, I grow this one on cork. It appears to like it. It is almost always moist around the roots, and it gets mid-range intermediate temps. Dappled sunlight for an hour or two, and then shade for the remainder of the day.

    Nice moss. Does it ever over-grow the orchid?

    Frequently. I have to nip it off once a month. The maintenance is worth it, though.

    I love the flowers, mount, pics, everything! I had drawn out a really large specimen of this to paint, then did a whole other painting on the other side of the paper without realizing! I will have to do another one again soon, I love this species:D
