    Cute little thing on a mount. First to flower... off season a bit with only one inflorescence. The other larger sister plant usually flowers with 4 to 5 clusters.

    I can just join the chorus: colour, intensity, stance, and a form nigh to perfection! :)

    May we see the plant in toto?

    It's mounted on cork with EpiWeb synthetic moss substrate to increase humidity around the roots.
    Will take plant pics soon.

    Thanks Phaladdict.

    I only used this syntic on a few plants to increase the humidty around the roots as plant was getting dehydrated. I don't use it in pots, although another orchid buddy does. Works well to wrap aound vanda and other aerial roots. However, according to him (and what I saw), in pots they grow algae easily.

    Very nice and well sized cernua... looks so very well grown as it hangs there in 'The Hanging Gardens of Canada" :)

    Very nice and cute S. cernua especially its colouration is an eye catcher

    Thanks Guru. The only down side is the flowers don’t last long at all. One week is about what you can expect.
