Some great plants there, you are getting a good collection together and I have to say you've picked some very interesting plants.

I look forward to seeing photos of them in bloom.

You had Promenea rollinsonii on your first list and not on the second. I hope it didn't die. Last year I tried very hard to find one but never did. Did it ever bloom for you? They are interesting little things to grow.

Hello all,

Bolero: I hope to see them in bloom too as I 've never had a plant bloomed so far (that is how lucky I am... :()The thing is that I had no experience at all, but I guess now I am more aware of what these plants need and which pecies I can grow in my appartment... This forum has also helped me alot... thank you alll....


Grandma M: I still have it, but it's psbs are kind of wrinkled, because it came flowered (they were faded) and had already started to smel some kind of rot. I saved most all the psbs but very few roots! I got it mounted on coconut shell big piece and try to keep it moisty, but I don't know if it's going to work.
I really need a root booster and protector... Any suggestions?


Thank you all for being so PERFECT... :):):)

I looked up a photo of the Mokara Noorah Blue you bought. Very nice looking plant. Lucky you that you can try to grow that.

This is my growing indoors area... It needs a lot of modification and surely I can make some more space, but I leave it this way till my budget is fine ;) I do not have the time, too... I also need to enclose it...!!!!

Hello,

cnycharles: This is how it looks for a long time now... It starts new growths and they end up like this...!!!!! What could be the problem?

I'm a bad one to ask, because any time i've tried to grow this 'easy' orchid, it dies! I think someone told me I was trying to grow it too cool, but I can't be sure.
