    I got mine at an Edmonton Orchid Show several years ago from Terry K. and I've since propagated dozens from leaves. It takes awhile to get to blooming size under my grow lights. It's interesting to see the size difference between plants grown under lights and plants grown on my windowsill (double the size in summer months). Good fungus gnat/ fruit fly control and the flowers are pretty too.
