I saw these in flower in San Fransisco Botanical Gardens and when the oportunity of obtaining one at the RHS show in March I just had to have one. It is a difficult orchid to keep as it needs high humidity and in my front room it gets very dry. Spraying with water at least once every day is done, but I have found that putting moss around the roots above a vase of water is keeping it growing well. Some of the roots are in the water of the vase.
