I do better with the tropical pings. I grow them on the window sill with a light hanging over them. Wouldn't need a light, if any windows in my house allowed light in.
It took me years to get the right species to be able to grow them. I agree Moranensis are the easiest and there's a bunch to choose from. I tried my natives and they die the fastest. :)
I never saw this message originally. What a beautiful plant.
I just got a P. "Tehuacan", which is beautiful with a tinge of pink. Really lovely. I hope to keep it alive. I also got a P. rotundiflora, which is tiny and pretty. I got them both from cobraplants.com Really lovely plants. They arrived on Thursday.
Heres my pinny, it sits on the ground in my orchid greenhouse in a tray of water and gravel (raising humidity as it evaporates). Not sure which it is but it has flowered once and produced one baby i removed and gave to a friend.
