    Nope. Paphs, & phrags typically die a swift death in my care and the Spathoglottis I attempted did no better. Most other terrestrials seem to require conditions I couldn't provide and so am unwilling to waste the money on. Haemaria/Ludisia discolor is the only terrestrial that has done well for me long term.

    I used to have Bletilla striata for long, long time at my mother's house. the plant was VERY old, growing in a aluminium cooking pot and dirt! yes, soil from her house patio hahaha and it was beautiful. It died last year I think. I have tried to have it here in Oklahoma but they always die! I bought one potted from the store, then another one, then one root, and another root... they all died on me! and I love them. I grew up having those flowers every year in the patio. and my family live in Chihuahua, Mexico. where we only have two seasons. very hot summers and dry winters (mostly), that's it! it's a big dry desert.
    So How come they thrived there and not here? I WANT ONE! at least. I guess I'll keep trying hahaha

    Beautiful orchids! I got a pleione, slipper orchid, and another one that i don't even know the name, the one with long leaves and small pink flowers, and they all died under my care. i remember the slipper orchid just dropped off the leaves one by one until only the soil left in the pot...sad... upon seeing the pictures, i'm starting to get inspired with the terrestials
