Ciao Patrick, I have not this small compact Cat. In my collection but had the chance to see It when I had been visiting the south part of Brasil
close to Iguazu waterfalls. I found an orchid nursery down there "Tribo Orquideas" that had lot of them blooming (on february) so in our emisphere It should Bloom in the summer, it's a coastal warm growing Cat, It needs great humidity and lot of water. It sounds similar to Cat. Violacea.
Good luck with yours!
