This one is in bloom while I was gone too. Very waxy and warty. Seems like a good growers, with 2 new growths coming. Nickname of this species, as I was told, is "Ms.HK" as it's the most common, although rare, species growing in situ in HK.

Another one of my favorites. I've gone through several that would grow like weeds for about a year flower and die. I found out that these have very thin leaves and can be stressed easy by low humidity.

I have a few now buried in the greenhouse that seem to be doing good.

Thanks for the culture tip! I'll bury this one amongst my phrags then :)
