The orchid has been placed in the corner of the south-facing and west-facing windows, where it trived. It bloomed almost immediately on a single inflorence, which it had when it was purchased. Those flowers faded and I cut off the spike and almost immediately three other spikes emerged. These three are now happily blooming.
I have tried to take pictures of this plant several times with no luck. Today I saw the (filtered) sun on the flowers, and took the above picture.
