    I acquired this plant from Orchid Inn a couple years ago in bloom. It is the brother to the FCC that Sam got at the Chicago Orchid show. This is the best blooming so far with the petals well held with a NS of almost 13 cm and wide petals (2.6 x 7 cm), big dorsal (4 x 4 cm), and a cool apple green colour.

    Very nice. I left you a message on your profile. I'm not really sure how the PM works.

    I like glossy dark green flowers like this!
    Do you grow indoor? what is your winter minimum in the growing area? I thought this species needs a lot of chilling to do well long term.
    SVO was offering this for a very low price and I regret for not getting any. I was hesitant about the winter temp that I could not provide.

    Hi Don, sorry the PM doesn’t seem to work. Yes I am interested in the Villosum. I’ll be at the SOOS show next weekend. Will you be there? Maybe you can bring then?

    It has about 3 old growths plus flowering growth and 2 new growths.

    I grow in hot wet summers and cool dry winters (nights at 15-16C by balcony door, which I open frequently to go out). It also likes to be underpot. And very bright light, about 2000 fc.

    Heavy feeding in summer with CaMg and MSU for RO, flush twice before feeding again. Fish emulsion occasionally with kelp. I pay close attention that pH is 6.5 (use pH up often as RO drops fertilizer mix to pH 4.0!!) and TDS less than 300 ppm.

    I have the type form too, all three of which are in bloom in a slightly warmer spot (18C winter nights). Will post when 3rd flower fully opens.

    The flower has flatten up to about 13.2 cm. Better presentation I think.
