Here are two pictures showing my Beallara Tropical Splendor in flowers since some days. Flowers make 6 inches diameter. It should have 7 flowers on the spike. When the plant receives the sun they are fragrant.Several times I saw this orchid in exhibitions, I have observed that the length of the spike was greater and the flowers more spaced out on the one. I cultivate this plant in a veranda, it thus receives much light. On which parameters must I make actions in order to obtain a longer spike and more spaced flowers?
Many thanks in advance for any informationís

Nice looking flower! Looks like you have a sideshoot developing as well. I would say they would be more spaced out with a little less light. Just a guess though.
