Very nice :) How long did it take from seed? I have a few flasks of these that are creeping along...

Looks like that first bloom still have a little growing to do in the petals :) The dorsal is a great shape at this stage, though. Very attractive :)

This one took almost 10 years but other plants in the batch flowered 2 years ago - I think that time lapse could have been squeezed down quite a bit as I initially didn't have any MH equipment

That's really gorgeous. Now that it has started blooming, in your experience, Uri, will it bloom easily from now on?

A two growths plant

MH is Metal Halide (lamp)
That makes sense. I have had mine in bright light since they were seedlings, and they are now putting on 2nd growths at 2-3 years with a LS of almost 24".
