Sobralia callosa keeps getting bigger and better

I have this plant so that as I pass the shadehouse in the morning, when I leave for work, I can see if it has flowers.  The flowers last a single day, but the plant blooms several times a year.  The plant is very pot bound in a 3 inch pot, and yet it keeps producing new stems.  I plan to repot it soon.  This blooming is the biggest up to date.  The plant has proven to be asy to cultivate under my climatic conditions and impervious to local insect pest.  Unfortunately the flowers are delicate and are often damaged by insects or local birds looking for nectar.
