I love the color of the flower. Just out of curiosity, where did you get the plant and how difficult is it to grow?

Charm - Sorry, no pic this year. The plant was looking a little ratty when I took the shot.

digitalphrag - Got the plant from Fishing Creek Orchids. Very easy to grow as long as the dormant period is observed. The plant dies back to little tubers that will rot if they are kept too moist. I keep the pot dry until new leaves start to poke up in the Spring.
