Penang, Malaysia..d home of fabulous paphs.
this is my grammatophyllum scriptum, first-time blooming. it had 108 flowers on 2 spikes... :D the flowers have now faded, but it is carrying 3 pods on one spike..:D it is rather space-consuming and a heavy feeder, but i think it is worth it... i have 2 other grams, g.scriptum v. citrinum and g. measuresianum (not very sure of its identity yet) but they are still small...:p

Beautiful. I find these hard to keep the pseudobulbs from rotting and the leaves from getting spidermites.

Dot, i think you should give them very bright sun, and coarser medium, as well as a lot of water...btw, i just repotted it (in pod!!)... had to wrestle the thing out of its pot, cos its root-bound already... =)
That's pretty much the way they are grown. Maybe they need more air movement?
