That is really great!
How long is the spike?
I know this is an old post, but I wonder if somebody can comment on how should I grow this handsome species. I was lucky to acquire a large specimen, that is in spike right now. I'm not gonna be able to adjust my temperatures so it will need to handle the cool-intermediate range, but what about watering, light, and humidity?
I don't have much of a track record other than I have a small one than I'm growing cool-intermediate, moist and lightly shaded. It is growing well, but probably not old enough to bloom. I think Mikhail grows a fair number of Cyrtochilum (if that is what they are still called ).
Thank you, Chuck.
This is my second Cyrtochilum (the first one is macranthum, which is a seedling), so I'm pretty excited about its bloom
I grew it for many years in the cool house. I grew it potted in a bark mix in a plastic pot. Moderately bright light and year round water.
It sounds like you stopped growing it?
Was it a little dry between waterings or constantly wet? I got it in a basket of pure sphagnum.
I gave them to a friend when I need space for other plants.
I don't think it ever really dried out. I would not say "constantly wet" but moist.
