    Cardinale 'wilcox'is now putting on fine show with branches and 2nd flowers and Jersey 'Lauren' is now starting up. An eye piercing shade of red orange. Both were from the Ratcliffes closing down sale and are originally from the EYOF.
    Cardinale is well behaved but Jersey has the annoying besseae habit of climbing.
    I have repotted it and bent the rhizome over towards the compost and added moss. This may have to be an annual event if I want to grow this indoors in low humidity.

    Very nice I do really like both of them. I have just ordered and Phrag Jersey will be arriving in the week. I will be thinking of putting a moss pole in with Jersey to accommodate its growing habit

    blondie,
    A moss poll may work, I've not tried them.
    Long stranded NZ sphagnum works well.
    I have a Mem Mariza Rolando that is 4 inches vertically between each growth and a nightmare for indoors.
    This has been tamed with the long strands of NZ sphagnum wrapped round the base of the new growth,

    Lovely flowers and rather amazing considering growing
    in a windowsill. The plants look very healthy.

    Update

    Trying a slightly different way of uploading from Flickr.

    Woohoo it works. Just taken half an hour to do it !
    Downloading B.B. code from Flickr on an iPad is not easy.

    Photo not great the background is too busy but you get the idea.
    Cardinale Wilcox throws short flowering stems with several branches. Great.

    Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. That moss thing between the growths is the way to go. Just keep spraying them.

    Moss and Phrag growth

    Eric,

    This is supposed to be MDC x Jason Fisher but flowered pink and obviously has Schlimii in it plus longifolium judging by the size of the new growth. The plant is in a windowsill tray with four others and all spent the summer outside and were then repotted and the pot surfaces covered in moss before being brought in. They are never flushed through and there is very little air movement round the pots as they are stuck in a corner on the floor. It doesn’t seem to make a difference to the growth!

    Next is Suzanne Decker. It’s been a vigorous two growth plant for about five years but this year there are four new growths and all should flower next year. It has had the same treatment as the previous plant. It should look stunning!

    Don’t you just love it when plants progress? I get as much pleasure growing them as flowering them. Sometimes more,

    David
