It's only on the windowsill for the picture;)
I got it last fall as a clump of bare pseudobulbs, and as soon as its new shoot had roots about an inch long I potted it and started watering it very heavily. The flowers are much smaller than I expected! From the pics I had seen, they looked like they'd be the same size as cooperi, in person they are barely half that size. I should also mention that in the pics I've seen, the spike gets MUCH longer...maybe that is why the flowers looked bigger.

Even though they are small, still very beautilfu! Perhaps a cross of Cyc. peruvianum and Cyc. lodigesii would influence flower size and keep some of the odd color and shaped labellum characterisitcs... maybe those hybrids are alreay out? :)

You'll have to bring this into a meeting so I can see it in person...I should be able to make the November meeting.
