This was a two bulb cutting I was given last year, it rewarded me with one pseudobulb last year. This year I seem to have three new growths. Alas, one may be failing before we begin, though I'll be keeping my beady little eyes on it! Not expecting any flowers just yet, just happy it's growing for now.

Conditions kept in,
Mix of coco coir, bark and sphag. Set on a Bonsai bot with stones.
Water: Kept moist at all time, water up to four times per week
Feed: 1/4 - 1/2 strength weekly
Light: Bright (similar to Cattleya)
Rest: No feed during winter, watering maintained as necessary.

Likely to repot this year, into a larger (preferably hanging) container. Repotting will basically be lifting from one pot to another to avoid too much root damage or disturbance. The stone setting should make it easier to remove from its current pot.

Any hints or tips always welcome.

Yeah it does look like that, but very unlikely to be that. Thankfully.
I did not notice that growth at first, and it seemed like it was trying to push into the large smooth stone behind. You'll notice that the growth first heads down then up quite dramatically, rather than that more normal curve. The stone was gently moved to allow the growth to continue unhindered - but alas not before the tip of it got a little squished. Not sure how well it will continue, but I am reluctant to cut it back just yet.
