    I got it as a seedling about ten years ago. It wasn't a really strong grower until it got a little bigger. It's currently in a 5.5-inch pot.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone. The flowers are more red than the picture shows. The light from the setting sun makes it glow. My wife said it's her favorite orchid ever. It might be my favorite too.

    The pot is kind of confusing. Did you have to air-layer stolonous growths?
