    Wonderful! I would love for micranthum season to come to my growing area. Any tips on blooming these?

    Coelogyne assamica

    This is particular plant likes to climb. So I don't think pot culture any kind works well for it. The mites are not a constant issue and were dealt with easily. My humidity is between 60-65% in my growing area. I am not too concerned. Now it just needs to keep growing and producing new roots...

    Coelogyne assamica

    I am thrilled to see this one blooming. It has been a challenge to keep it close to happy. This species is a climber so pot culture was difficult. Mounting and a spider mite attack set it back, but now it is progressing. Not the easiest to photograph.

    Phrag. besseae variation

    The cooler temps can really make a difference in these. Both blooms are lovely but the shape and color in January are stunning. Is this a first time bloomer? I am wondering if some of the shape changes are also influenced by maturity.

    Phragmipedium Raspberries N' Cream

    Thanks. It is a 2.5 or 3inch air cone pot. I can't remember which is correct. It's a very compact plant.

    Paphiopedilum vejvarutianum

    This one bloomed faithful until I moved. Since then it bloomed once in 5 years. Last summer I grew it next to the Cattleya. I guess that did the trick. Hopefully this is repeatable.

    Phrag. caudanum

    I have a large one that finally spiked only to blast 3 weeks into development. On the other hand I have a seedling from Windy Hill that is a single growth seedling that is spiking. I wish I knew why one seems so hesitate and the other bloomed early. Breeding and good genes I guess. I grow both...
