    It's a beauty, whatever it is. Does it bloom regularly or require anything special?

    it blooms once the new growth matures which is roughly every 6 or maybe 7 months......its growing in a pot under the T8's i use to grow my CP's.......its right between the 10 gallon tank that has my U. humbuldtii and the other tank that has my Orchidioides section Utrics.......growing it in course orchid bark mixed with some regular potting soil.......water it about every other week and fertilize it about every other month with what is leftover from the mix i feed my nep pitchers......actually its been one of my more care free and reliable bloomers but it only sets off one new pup at a time and the one that bloomed dies not long after that so there is nothing for me to divide for trade material.......the flowers pictured will prolly stick around about 4 weeks than when they die it will start growing a new pup and about the time the pup is half grown the old rosette is mostly dead.....
