Darlene, yours is a similar eye catcher as Leslie's one. Very impressive. 👍 👍

Thanks all!

@Duck Slipper

Leslie's guidance is spot on. I would just add that I find it easier to bloom that henryanum or spicerianu. I do provide higher light closet to the 2000fc. Too much over that and it will burn. Speaking from personal experience.😉

They grow with spicerianums and henryanums.

Warm to hot summers with cooler (slightly drier but not dried) winters. They can tolerate low temperatures to 10C, although I keep on average 15C winter nights (range 12-18C nights fall and winter). Winter days average 22C.

Likes bright light around 1400 to 1600 fc. Even up to 2000 fc with good ventilation.

Blooms like clockwork February to March.

I'd say they are easy to grow and are pretty strong plants. Clumps well.

Splendidly splendid! Looks like a relatively large flower compared to the compact plant. Do you have any measures of it?

Thank you! The flower is 11.5 cm NS (Natural spread, correct?). The flowering growth is about 24cm wide.
