    I have been waiting for this one to bloom. Last night I got home and thought I would take a pic since it was open. Tragically when I pulled it off the bench I didn't realize that there were several flowers that were blooming on the other side of the slats. Oops. Oh well. There are a few more spikes on it.

    Sorry about the wire in the picture. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to come up with a better way to prop it up for the picture without pulling it off the plant, which I didn't want to do.

    That's really, really nice, Mr. Murray. The plant appears to be quite divisible.

    Thanks folks.

    MJ, this one is hard to come by. But I can probably find one or two easy growers for you to try.

    I wasn't implying you should send me this one (or that bulbo you posted the other day :) ) I was just wondering if I should try one in my dry, warmish spare bedroom or wait for spring.

    I wasnt implying that I was considering sending you this one. :D

    dry and warmish may be tough.

    I know. I go through this every couple of years. If I had more room, I'd have an orchidarium setup but right now that's out. *sigh*
