Tom, these lovely flowers are really irresistible. 👌 If they would last a bit longer...they were perfect.

Culture that works for me:
they like a hard dry rest (Nov-Feb) after which I soak (literally in a bucket) for an hour or more to wake them up.

I didn't soak them an hour but keep spraying water. It is finally pitting out two new roots. Did you leave the old roots on mount?

The other thing they like is really high light in the dry season. Come from deciduous forest where it is quite bright in the cool season. Not enough light, not enough cool, too much water is the recipe for no blooms.

So in summary we have the lindlyi poem:

HANG EM HIGH
KEEP EM DRY

LET EM BE COLD
THEY’LL BE BOLD

SOAK EM AWHILE
THEY’LL WAKE WITH A SMILE

(oh my where is my head this morning)
