The plant has dropped the leaf that cracked during shipping as well as the oldest leaf since I got it in August. The new growth that started in September is now about 26 inches long and still growing.
In this picture you can see a smaller B. phalaenopsis in the clay pot on the right, and the leaf of a huge B. phalaenopsis just barely in the picture on the far right.
The plant is producing 2 new growths, one of them is off of the newest bulb. I picked up a few nice peices of driftwood and decided to mount the plant since the basket was starting to rot after only 6 months.
