The cross is Cascade Creek x gardineri. Cascade Creek is PEOY x adductum.
This compact plant (leaves are only about 8in long) has been a good grower & bloomer for me. It took two years to bloom for the second time. Starting the third bloom, the interval was reduced to less than one year.
It just finished blooming with two flowers in January. I was hoping for two spikes in bloom together, but oh, well...
Grown under T8 florescent light tubes. The plant is taken out of the light shelf once the spike reaches certain height.
Potting mix is large bark & perlite chunks topdressed with sphagnum moss. No repotting since 2016.
New growths are bursting out of the pot so I have to repot after blooms fade.

Nice, reminds me of QF Hula Dancer, but with a slightly wider dorsal. Plant looks beautifully grown!
