    I have grown this plant for a few years now and seems to not skip a beat this year even after a selfing. It's not flashy, but is quite pleasing I think.

    I think it's gorgeous and if that beauty ever puts out a
    keiki, I'd move heaven and earth to have one...also $$$$.

    Dot, I had one many, many years ago from Dowery and I mounted
    mine with sphag. on cork and treated like any other Phal. It grew
    and bloomed beautifully for a very long time. Then we had a
    power outage for eight days.

    I grow this in sphag, at low light, which in my condition is about 500 fc. Watered it the same with others in sphag about once a week now and a little more in the summer. Haven't repotted it in two years..

    Angela, I think Peter occasionally have a few for sale now and then. I have replated the protocorms so maybe I'll have some seedlings to trade in a million years if I don't mess up lol

    It was much worse than ouch Charles. I lost several of
    my Dowery species with that outage and now Dwayne
    is out of business. My huge fimbriata that I loved so much
    died too.

    Thanks for the info, Han & Angela.

    Angela, when was your outage? Do you have a generator? How did your plants fare?

    Hi there, I was researching this species and came to your post? Wondering if ever you did get plants from your selfing?
