I got this semi/alba from EOoM, in 2003 and this is the second blooming for me. This one requires full sun in winter, now that I have figured this out it should bloom every year. wonderful scent too. Enjoy...~Charm

Beautiful! I love these orchids and have a few. I cannot get them to bloom. Maybe it is the winter sun which is lacking. I'll give them another year before throwing in the towel.

So lovely - great growing Charm...

Very pretty. Since they need full winter sun, they won't go on my 'got to have' list.

That's so pretty. When did it put on the flowering growth? I'm imagining it has a lovely scent too.

John, this orchid puts on new growth in very early spring, it will bloom on new growth and old.~Charm

I found a site that says that "in the United States, growth begins in early February and is completed by mid-May." Does this correspond to your experience?

Charm - what light and how warm? I can't get mine to bloom. I love these plants.
