    I got this 3 years ago from Afri Orchids. Somehow the tips of leaves always become brown even though it has been growing and flowering well. It is a sequential bloomer. I keep it at a cool-end of intermediate.

    These photos were from May 8.

    Cool. Does it have a fragrance?

    I really like it when you educate me about orchids
    I know nothing about, Naoki. This one is lovely
    and a bit strange...very colorful too.

    Thank you, Angela. This species looks quite different from the typical of this genus (although it is a big genus).

    Tyronne, I didn't check, but I'll try to remember next time when it blooms.
