Default Stanhopia Oculata Question

how ironic Shell-I got one of these last week from the same seller. Did you
get anything else from him?

It is a young plant, will need to be in a web pot or wood slat basket-
something that will allow for the flower to spike out the bottom of the pot.
There are several stanhopea growers here- I'm like you, have 2 young plants
and haven't seen a bloom. I do know they like to be kept moist and warm.
Seems to do better with lots of indirect light.
We will see who's blooms first- at least I can tell you to find a net pot
that is the same size- overpotting to big set my first plant back, and be
careful of the new growths.

I have just gotten a Stanhopia oculata on eBay. I have been doing some
reearch on the web but I can't find anything on how old a plant has to be

flower. Is it like most and needs to be several years old? 218&rd=1

This is the page for the auction. Any opinions on the plant?
