Here's my blooming Zygopetalum hybrid, shop-bought with a couple of leaves. Grows like crazy even in winter time. Currently it has one spike, but every flowering is bigger. Last time it has 5 flowers, now it's lovely bunch of 7 :)

It took four years and who knows how many sweet words, but my Epidendrum is finally blooming. Should I say it supposed to be red? :D
