    Thanks for listing plants. They all are hard to purchase in Florida. I will just have to keep an eye out for folks that grow them here.

    I have 2 Cyms now, Bllra.Tahoma Glacier Ithon, and Mtssa. Kauai's Choice 'Tropical Fragrance'.I keep them in a room with south and east facing windows,my pellet stove is in this room also. I have an old small baking pan that I keep with water in while using the stove. I've had the for almost a year now and both are going to bloom for the first time for me, they were in bloom when I bought them at a grocery store. I should add that I live in the high desert, which means DRY and HOT in the summer,and DRY and COLD in the winter. They are in clay pots with a mixture of bark, sphag moss and a handful of potting soil thrown in for good measure. There is lots of new growth on the first as well. I spray the top of medium almost every day as well, and water about once a week, letting the pots sit in the water for an hour or two, then I pour it through again and let it drain off. Will post pictures as soon as I figure out how to do so using my cheapie phone as I don't have a camera to use.
    Happy growing everyone, and thank you all for all the info!

    I have quite a few of the cooler growing out in the spring brought in when the Temps. go below 40 can't trust Mo. weather they are put on an enclosed porch that is heated to about 50 .. Please excuse typos it is early lolol ..... Gin
    Gosh! What a lovely collection! At the moment, apart from an ensifolium and a sinense, I have a Chen's Ruby; also a couple of Golden Elf Crosses on order... just found a UK supplier who specialises in the oriental ones. So it is all very exciting.
