I love these! Cycnoches rarely grow into big specimens the same way as Catasetums or Clowesia because older growths on Cycnoches typically die down in just 2-3 years time, or sometimes even sooner than that. But I sure do hope some of my Cycnoches will grow a lot taller than they are now over time. These can randomly get very tall and start producing crazy amount of flowers per spike. Only time will tell.Lovely, very impressive flowers and yes...the darker the more impressive.....but I think you are aware of you will need much bigger pots very soon.
Absolutely spectacular!I got myself three seedlings of Cycnoches cooperi earlier in the summer. Two of them bloomed last month. The last seedling (first photo below) is now in bloom. Two of them are much darker than the other. I like them dark.

How lovely, I also got one of these, but mine was pretty small and did not bloom. The last picture appears to have all three plants in bloom? I'm not partial to darker or lighter for color, I think each one is amazing. Congratulations!
Oh and awesome photos by the way!!
I love this species alot and it flowers every year. They can produce over 30 flowers on a single spke!
