    I got a Pluerothalis tribuloides in flower, a Platysteli stenostachya, and a Phalaenopsis lobbii. I tried posting pics, not sure what happened.

    Not really, this is my first Pleuro. I think Aaron is the guy you want to ask.

    You need to have that light on for 12 hours if that is the only source of light they get. And if so, double that light!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures, Colin. It really helps us new folks to see how others' orchids are grown, what they look like in the pot, how the leaves/bulbs/stems look, the mediums used, etc., and not just the gorgeous flowers. Good show!

    Thanks, Tmai. The pleuro bug has bitten me hard!!! im up to around 30-40 pleurothallidinae plants in my collection now, including the recently potted divisions. Hopefully everything will stay happy, although i have managed to kill a teeny little Masdevillia keiki, but i suppose it was probably going to kick the dust at some point anyway - two tiny leaves and only little nubs of roots. So i dont feel TOO bad about it. everything else seems to be doing ok though, and im experimenting on a sealed microchasm project at the moment - currently just doing a string of Trichosalpinx (believed to be T. chamelepanthes) on osmunda with a little livemoss thrown in as an indicator of humidity. The temperature in my area is pretty constant around 60-65 fahrenheit, so i think its still suitable, and the air circulation is good.

    I got the idea for the sealed-mini-terrarium type idea when i was up at that greenhouse in connecticutt. i head abuot this young orchidologist with a great specimen sized L. calodictyon that he had growing in... a COOKIE JAR!! so im trying the idea out on a few of my plants of which i have several divisions. photo updates will follow (unless i end up killing the plants, haha!). Thanks for all the advice, y'all!! I'll keep you posted.
