    Two quite different clones of this species. The first, and darker, clone is 1.75" wide while the second is 3" wide. They are difficult to photograph because the flower wants to face downward no matter which way you twist and turn the spike.

    I prefer the more vibrantly colored one, despite its smaller size. Has Karen seen these? Do you have locks on your doors?

    Those are super nice. I don't think we get to see these too often!

    They are slow growing, though as Karen can tell you, it helps if they are alive when you buy them. I have done several outcrosses of this species. One is recently out of flask, but doing very well. Now I know how I can say thank you.

    I'm growing them in a fine bark mix in plastic pots, year round water and fertilizer, RO water, moderately bright light. Minimum night 56F, maximum day 80F. They have been in the current mix about 1.5 years and the roots look good. One of them came out of the pot while I was trying to get the flower in a position where I could shoot it. When the seedlings get bigger, I'll try some mounted, different media and in different conditions. I am growing the seedlings in lower light for now. (Read that: on the floor because there is no room on the bench.)

    Those are pretty radical differences! Lovely, though - especially the first.

    Clark, I think it was from Michael Ooi.
    It never did a thing. I'm still bummed.
    Finally threw it out, a couple of weeks ago.

    Thanks, Piotr. I was focused on other vendors at the WOC, I guess. I don't even remember their booth.

    Yup, I bought a dead one also...at WOC...from Michael Ooi...and it wasn't cheap either. But, I emailed him and he apologized.

    Marni, are you making these outcrosses available? I'd enjoy getting a couple.
