    OK, Ludisia (x2) potted up in bark & little rocks, plus some sphagnum on the top to keep it a bit damp.

    Anoectochilus temporarily set up in plastic bag to keep humidity in, until I find a decent little "greenhouse" for it.

    Will keep you informed of progress ;-))

    I grow the Jewel orchid and the moss in not a good idea for them .I have mine in small phalonapsis chunks with a bit of soil dropped in . It is loosely soiled not a lot so there is a bit of soil as in their habitat. I had a problem with them in my last place mold and dry air and uneven humidity and air circulation . I now have them up in a high window and they love it as I have a ceiling fan going on slowly even in cold weather to circulate the air around all my plants , and me . the plants love it and respond nicely as compared with the other conditions I used to have.

    They get light all day long and it is a cool window sill and wide abpout 18 inches, I have them in a styrofoam cut out box with their pots inside of it, and water them with once the get very dry only , as in their habitat ;if a rain shower comes and goes and the they dry our with the breezes, I finally learned I was loving the plant too much like a child haha, and not as it would like within it's nature / I had to learnr too much love can kill them too. I found out the hard way. Now I find the best way to imitate their homebase and give it to them the best you can. I hope this is of hel and you can find more air incorerated into the bathroom for them and see if it helps, bye DeLadybex
