How nice!I love this sp.!!!❤❤❤❤Any growing tip?
I wish I could claim skill but it’s luck to be honest! It’s on a west facing window so it’s bright a lot of the time (but not too hot, I live in Scotland after all!) and I’ve just kept it damp, not too wet, with regular fertilising. Keeping the old growth will be the next challenge I believe 😬

Lovely flower of a rare species. Good luck for keeping it alive and making (a) new shoot(s). 👍
Compared with the one I used to have the shape of the dorsal is better although it's a bit hooded, at least in this photos.

I would enjoy it, too - nay, relish it! And cut it, immediately it starts to falter. You better wait to self it, untill it has grown stronger, in my opinion.

Congrats on the bloom. Colors very nice. Although the dorsal is cupped, we can't complain as it's flowering!

How big is the plant tip to tip? I have some here that are 15-20 cm total leafspan. Wonder if they are blooming size?

Thank you 😊
Mine is 22cm tip to tip so based on that I would say yes for yours
