I must have had it at least 10 years and it is very slowly growing in size. It usually has one or two flowers but this year there are six. It struggled for many years because I was probably not watering it enough. Now it sits in water during the summer along with a large Coelogyne cristata. Winter it gets water about once a week.

I wonder, whether you would need someone helping you to get rid of this sanderae to make more room for your Catts? If so, we will have to hurry before the final, total lockdown dawns on Greater Brexitannia on January, 1st! 😁 😁😷😷

Looks like it’s finally happy rewarding you for some attention.

I think Jens should get a backup lol.

There was an accident this summer and the plant fell over and became desiccated before I found it. It seems to be slowly recovering But is in no fit shape to send abroad!

Lovely flowers and unfortunately these plants are rare ones. I've been looking around for many years to fin one but so far without success.

............But is in no fit shape to send abroad!
I think sending abroad won't be necessary because Jens would even come to Cambridge and fetch it. Lol

We wish for a speedy recovery! And Rudolf is once again right, I would go to quite some lengths... though not at the moment, where I can't even leave my apartment! 😷

6 flowers make a nice show. Were you growing in a saucer of water because of the accident over the summer or is that just how you grow it? I have one but it is a very slow grower.

I’ve read that insigne likes to be really wet when growing in the summer.
There was a post from someone in Australia with an enormous insigne which sat in water all summer,

I found quite a number for sale either currently or recently, including a flask from Terry Partin. I am a big fan.
