i bought these 2 on monday morning and i repotted them into hydroton (no reservoir, watering a couple times a week works for me). healthy plants for sure =) the cornu-cervi definitely appears to be blooming size (there are just as many roots down below as leafs up top, not to mention they are huge, averages about 3/4 cm in diameter) and the mannii is a little small so i dun think it will be blooming until a little while later; how big do they get anyways? i've actually never seen a real blooming specimen for me to compare so i dunno. can anyone tell/show me?

this is a pic of them two


and these pics are of my mannii, i love the pigmentation around the crown

Mannii doesn't have to be real big to bloom. I suspect yours is about a year from blooming size. I don't know about the other.

thank u, slipperfan
anither question
i tend to notice that the leaves of the cornu-cervi tend to be long and elliptical in shape, but the new leaves that grew are fairly round, there any reason for it?

the cornu-cervi blooms

for those who did follow this thread back then, thank you. my cornu-cervi has finally bloomed flower #1 =) more flowers to come but i guess i should show and tell this for now ^^

the mannii on the other hand might still be a little young so it doesnt look like it wants to bloom yet, but thatz ok. slow and easy wins the race as it is always said

well here's the picture i took this morning after i watered it
