Rossioglossum Rawdon Jester

RawdonJester917I purchased this Rossioglossum Rawdon Jester on my visit to Santa Barbara Orchid Estate on September 12th.  I first discovered this plant when Mady Gruys sent me a picture from Germany, and I targeted this plant in my visit to SBOE.  It has one new growth, and I put it into S/H right away.  The roots were not that good, but there was some new growth, and I believe it should be OK.

From the SBOE Website: 

A primary hybrid from the crossing of two spectacular and closely related Central American species: Rossioglossums grande and williamsianum.  A prolific and willing bloomer. Temperature Tolerant. June blooming.

Low to medium light is best for this plant.

Below is a picture of the potential flowers:
