    This is the healthiest plant I have ever cultivated. I have repotted and divided it several times and I can’t remember a time when I had to remove a single rotten root!!! Certainly, I have done something correct, but I have reported 1000s of orchids and I have never had roots so healthy that I didn’t have to at least cut of some dead roots!

    That goes a long way to to endearing a plant to me. Sometimes when people say to me a plant is well grown I think to myself " It looks well grown because it grows well".

    I think I got that plant in the early 00’s from a local greenhouse that is now gone. Funny thing is that I recently inherited a rather large collection and it contains 1 as well. So I actually have 3 plants and 2 of them are multiple growth large specimen type plants.

    The other I will say about this plant is that once it starts blooming it just continues to send out new spikes. The last time this plant bloomed before I divided her it was in bloom from early Feb all the way thru September. I think it had 6 spikes in all.
