Your basket culture is really paying off now Rick and the plants seem to love it. May be worth an experiment on one or two plants? Great double bloom.

Are the flowering growths larger or smaller than the previous ones?
About the same size at time of blooming. For one reason or another, the growths continue to grow after blooming, making last years growths bigger at this time.

My wardii tend to do this also.

Looks fantastic Rick.

I just put my spare lawrenceanum into a basket with sphagnum. We will see how it goes.

I was my first plant when I was living in the Philippines. Now I'm living in Chicago, anybody knows where I can get one?
Great flowers!

Just did some measurments

The oldest (2 years ago) bloomed growth is 6.5" across. Last years is 9" The present two are 7.5". And a new one coming up.

So all fairly close and overlapping.
