I am posting early but can not help it. I am excited to see this one blooming. Also, it feels like it is taking forever to open. Here is my Michael Koopowitz (philippinense 'Super Long Twister' x sanderianum '90+') from Orchid Inn. I will take better picture once all the buds open.

Beautiful and very healthy! I wish my MK would flower, although I think mine needs to be a little bigger looking at your one.

Do you know how old this plant is? Mine has 2 fans and great roots in a 5” pot purchased (in a 4”) from Orchids Ltd 2 years ago, but nowhere near this leaf span yet and has not bloomed. Mine is MK (philippenense var. roebelinii ‘Crouching Tiger’ x sanderianum ‘Year of the Dragon’). Yours looks like a single fan in he photo! Great blooms.

I am not sure how old it is but I purchased it two years ago as a single growth plant in a five inch pot also. A second growth is starting but it's very small.

That's actually better. Yours will bloom every year once it starts.

Mine too is as large but no blooms. The rule is ‘they bloom when they want’ lol.
