    I bought a beautiful one from Gold Country orchids about a year ago. It's bloomed twice. Are you going to the Sacramento orchid meeting next week? I have a piece which broke off mine. If you want it it's yours.

    brachypetalum flask progress

    I've grown a couple of brachy flasks before, but usually only about a third of the seedlings survived. These two are doing so well I'm afraid to repot them.

    Antioch California. Where salt water comes from the tap and the temps reach 115F ... I have a grow room in my garage. I recently installed a wet wall and temp controlled fan. So far it doesn't get over ~78F. Not the hot part of the year yet. We'll see how hot it gets when it's over 100 outside.

    Don't give up. It gets about 110F here. I have kept some alive (barely) for almost a year. Peak temp in my grow room was about 90F. Have a wet wall and temp controlled fan installed now. Hopefully it will be cooler.

    Paph Pal

    Well ... Someone's culture is on track. I bought it at California Orchids over the weekend. Bolinas is usually in the low 50's at night. Hope it looks like this next time it blooms!
