Brassia Edvah Loo 'Nishida' x Miltonia clowesii, a hybrid that grows very well but rarely blooms in my garden

The flowers of this orchid have been surprisingly variable, sometimes they have long Brassia like floral segments and sometimes they don't.  It grows very well and can tolerate a wide range of sun exposures.  I have grown it in shade and in places where it gets hours of full sun.  It has bloomed in both places the flowers were more Brassia like when grown shady and favored the clowesii parent when grown in the sun.
