    A BS Cory in a 2" pot? I had no idea any of them grew anywhere near that small! What's the species?

    Best I knew, the spikes would be horizontal, but if they're tending downward, I'd go with a slat wood basket or a plastic or wire mesh basket.

    What kind of mix are you using with it?

The spike does grows straight out from the base . What do you think about the Neo . method ? Thanks your info. is appreciated

    Well, I'm still surprised about it blooming at that size, and I figured you meant Neofinetia. Good growing!

    I would think the Neo mound-type potting would work well, especially since they're supposed to like aciding potting materials, like sphag.

    How wet do you keep it?
