I think I can make room for this under my 400 W HID light. Would that be too much light? It is the only place where I have enough height. If it is too much I may be able to juggle plants around so I can put it under my T5 lights but there is less height there. My other light carts where I grow my paphs do not have that much height.
I have had my eye one that one for a while now. I hope I can find one large enough to bloom for the next season. How large was yours before it bloomed? Our local orchid show is next weekend. Possible I can find one there.
The plant had 3 pseudobulbs before it bloomed. The plant (minus the spike) is about 15-18". I trained the spike on my first one upright and it was nearly 3 feet but the second one (the one pictured) I let arch so the spike is actually about the same 'height' as the leaves. I grow mine in a south window. They need less light than Cattleya but more than Paphs and Phals.
Well Marilyn, I have egg on my face! I bought mine as 'Unicorn Splendor' but when I googled 'Howards Dream', turns out that's what I have! 'Unicorn Splendor' has a rounder, shorted lip and is paler pink than 'Howards Dream'. That's twice I got a clone from this vendor that ended up being a different clone that what I purchased....I'm not dissappointed as I think 'Howard's Dream' is nicer than 'Unicorn Splendor'! :clap:
