    Default Had to have it

    So, today I went to the Mt. Baker Orchid Society show and found ONE of these little guys for sale. Of course I had to have it...

    The grower said that they do need to be allowed to get pretty dry even in growth periods and LOTS of light. For my Pacific Northwest USA location, he recommended a southern exposure window year-round (just south of the Canandian border, and on the coast, so lots of overcast winter days).

    Thanks for the very timely posting of your pic, Kev, so that I knew what I was looking at (not in bloom but 4 "new growths" that might end up being flowers, hoping, hoping, hoping...).

    Thanks for confiming what I thought this plant wanted.
    Hmmmmmmmmm ........ I bet we got our plants from the same grower. I don't think we can mention names on this forum, but mine also originally came from the PNW.

    Mine came from an australian nursery, which is now closed for us ordinary growers. Bought it at the 2000 EOC. Had to have it because it is named after a danish botanist, and also because it is such a cutie.

    The new growths on our plants look like they wont be flowers (though still hoping). Gotta try the "keep it dry" method, how soon should this dry treatment be started, right after growth has matured, or in late winter until new growth is on its way or?

    Our bulbs are a bit shorter than those on this delightful photo, but more fat, definetly mature. But will it bloom for us - no
