You would not know it as many flowers are hidden in the leaves, but this plant has between 45 and 50 flowers.

Good lord, one I actually have. I tend to forget about it as it's so small. I don't grow many as they like cool conditions for the most part and are temperamental. This seems easier than most and is a prolific flowerer when it decides to. Have yet to discover why it called "Horseshoe Orchid".

It has now decided that this is the time. Has been in continuous bloom since I first posted it, now has over 100 flowers.

The flush goes in a continuous circle , not just facing the light source.

What's unusual for this one is that it has flowers scattered throughout the body of the plant. Usually the flushers make a ring of flowers on the periphery only.

That is awesome. Did you do anything different this time around or is the plant just more mature?

This is all the same bloom cycle.
