Who else grows this ? I received one as a gift in June. It had one little spike with a couple blooms. When it finished up I repotted it out of it's plastic pot.The pot was full of good healthy roots. I've got it in clay right now, but was considering mounting it. What would you guys suggest ?

I would think this one can be grown happily in a clay pot or mounted. I would choose the one which fits your watering practices better.
It is a cute plant and will give you nice blooms on longish spikes.

Here is a link recommending a wood mount, high light and lots of water while in growth.

I'm still looking to see if I can find a variety that looks more like yours. Outstanding orchid by the way. I love it.

Wonder if the purple stripe in the lip bleeds color into the lip as the flower matures? I have some that do this, especially in rainy weather.
