It is beautiful! I got one at a recent Ft Lauderdale show and it never did well. It came in one of those soft plastic liners with a "rock" of sphagnum moss. When I took it out of the moss there were no roots inside there.

BTW, I can see on the first photo that the growths are kind of weak.

I received this plant in the same conditions packed with a very compact ball of sphagnum and little or no roots. After two years of culture it seems to give the best of itself but I must say that the growth is far from being vigorous.
The flower texture and the color are better than last year but the growth.... crazy ... 6 months to reach maturation ! As with Chunyeah the pseudobulbs are slender, 11 months of worry for one month of happiness ...
