    Thanks! I'm surprised it still flowered since it's reaching just a bit over 80 degrees in the grow tent.

    If I remember correctly, I read that it was because of the pouch-like growth habit of the lip.

    Now that you mention it (and I look closely) it is definitely more of a pouch than other draculas.
