    From a selfing of 'Moon and Stars' that I deflasked 4 years ago. Sold off/gave away the others and kept one of the smaller ones for myself.
    I finally got tired of waiting for it to bloom on its own and forced it; now it has 3 sheaths that I can see so far.

    I'm also interested in how you went about this...

    Beautiful plant by the way. Looks nice and compact!

    Lol. That is... awesome! Did you just stick it in there? Or did you put in a bag or something to maintain humidity?

    Hmn... maybe I need to try this strategy with my stubborn micranthum... :rolleyes:
