Brassia Rex 'Waiomao Spotless' not your everyday Brassia hybrid

Unlike my other Brassia hybrids, this one demands that one pays attention to its need if it is to produce its large and impressive inflorescences.  If neglected it produces small pseudobulbs that bloom with inflorescences that are only a fraction of what this plant is capable of producing under optimal conditions.  It needs regular watering and fertilization during its growth phase and bright light.  For me it is a slow and deliberate grower, not in any way like my other Brassia Rex clones, which grow constantly and bloom frequently.  This plant blooms for me just once a year.

Last year's inflorescence, pictured above was larger and had more flower than the 2014.
