Hi Grace,
I can feel your excitement from the other side of the Globe.
That sure does look great.
Thanks for sharing your joy and the pictures.

Thanks Kell, Over the winter I hung it in my husbands workshop by one of the flouresent lights, a couple of weeks ago I looked up and saw 3 buds. I went to whoopin and hollerin. Did I say I was excited. lol I have learned so much from the other epi growers on Daves, it has been a wonderful teaching tool..

Thank you Orchidman1, I bought it on ebay 2 yrs ago. The cuttings were older and rooted really well right away. Out of all 20 that I hve I always knew that would be the first.
The blooms are gone now. Question..should I start feeding regularly now that the blooms are gone. I've been using a 10-10-10 liquid and miracle grow.
Thanks

Feed regularly with the exception of December and January. Your plants need this time as a rest period. 10=10=10 is perfect. bob
