Not to be outdone, the Australian entrant lol. I’ve heard people find them hard to grow. For me they are one of the easiest species.

Very nice. Can you please advise as to your growing conditions and media used?
It’s a small bark and perlite (50/50) with some sphagnum on top. I deflask them straight into this and put them out in the shade house. They’re perfectly fine with an Adelaide winter and rain. I water to the conditions, but usually daily in warm weather. Humidity is of course very low here being a dry climate. Same conditions as for micranthum and canhii, which grow right next to them.

Please go on? I don’t understand why seed-grown specimens aren’t.
Because all parts of a cites I listed species need to be obtained legally, including the seed. Seed derived from plants legally obtained would be legal. Mind you it’s all BS really. If they really cared about conservation they would stop people selling them by the kilo at markets.
