    Default Epidendrum peperomia aka porpax

    I decided to keep this one growing so it could be divided and half of it mounted on a new piece of cork. Probably won't have as many flowers next fall but it had outgrown the old mount. I took 25-30 pieces off and put them on a cork slab that is about 12"x 6". Still have about the same size plant on the old mount as I did a year ago.

    After seeing your earlier post on it I took my tiny piece and mounted it on a piece of cork then put it in my new terrarium. It made a bloom!

    Excellent! I put a few bits on small pieces of cork for our society show next month.

    Progress after almost a year. I have the cork hanging but think it would be doing a lot better as a raft. The growth at the bottom is getting a lot more water. No room at the inn though. Hasn't stopped flowering since October.

    Is there anything in particular that you find triggers its blooming? I have one that I'm growing warm under T5 lights in a terrarium. It's growing and rooting well, but no blooms yet.
