C guatemalensis x Mem Helen Brown 'Sweet Abton' AM/AOS

The new growth is strong and in the cases where I have un-potted a plant, the roots are excellent.

This plant is in sphagnum over peanuts in a 5 1/2-inch clay pot. There are six pseudobulbs and stands twelve inches above the pot. Because of the straight line growth and because there is a single lead, I plan to divide this after it blooms. There is not room for another growth and I don't think a larger pot would be a good idea.
