    I love everything about the blooms...delicate, beautiful and
    very exotic to me. Might we see a photo of how you grow it
    sometime?

    Well it is still in a small Aircone pot with a bark mix but there are two growths over the edge now so I will be repotting it soon. Nothing at all special for this one!

    Very cool! I have a small division of this one but it is only growing slowly. Hopefully to put up a few flowers like yours.

    I bought mine as a single growth division and it too has been a slow grower. But it's finally putting out a couple more rhizomes.

    Are there really only two strains in common trade? Oaxaca and Windy Hill?

    TWO wonderful blooms...super! One of these days I'm going to get the
    nerve to try to grow these little beauties.
