That's a pretty spectacular Schom. Is it as slow as mine? Although they are S American species they are not often seen here.

The spike is about 6-7 ft tall,it does take a loooong time, so they break for some reason or other- windstorms, basket ball etc.

A very diverse selection, but then I'm also eclectic in my orchid tastes. :)
My Schom. tibicinis stopped blooming on the 20th after 3 months.

Thanks all. Carol, the only criteria for my plants is that they should be warm growers and deal with the outside S Fl growing conditions. Usually the micro mini's get lost outside. I love the honking huge Schombo's.
