Love 💘 the flowers.
But hate the growth habit ☹
Peter,
I agree the habit is less than tidy, in this case I am partly responsible as I just let it ramble. The fact I used an inorganic media, and hung it meant I didn’t have to do anything except pot it up. My day of reckoning is on the horizon.

NO! Not your fault! It is more likely the growth habit of L. pumila. Not sure about bicalloi.🤔
All of subgenus Hadrolaelia is prone to sprall, so both parents are contributing. Even with military level potting discipline, they sprall. With free-form growth like this you see the full natural potential.
