    I posted this same plant last year but here it is again. It has probably triple the number of blooms of last year. Shady, moist, mounted, intermediate.

    Beautifully grown, and a very desirable species.

    I'm very partial to the small, mat-forming gastrochilus, but of the larger species I think this is the finest. Nice blooming.

    One of my favorites from this genus. Nice bloom! and mine probably is two months behind yours--just showing spikes now.
