Like every year my Trichopilia tortilis flowers like clockwork anually in July. Last year I posted fotos of her at July 15th, this year ten days later.
First two photos of the whole plant from different angles......

Wow! That's a really nicely grown and bloomed Trichopilia. Thanks for sharing. Any tips?
Eric, I often wrote here before tht I grow my orchids slightly diferent as growers do usually. So I do with my Trichopilia. The plant sits in an inoganic potting medium (cut Styrofoam stripes) and I Can't really remenber ever repotted her. I water it once a week not mor often but always with few fertilizer. That's all.

.....With that medium btw. you only need to repot, when your success seems to be to the plants detriment (i.e. it grows out of the pot, either to the sides or upwards)! 😉
Indeed Jens, that's correct.
