    Tami,

    I really preferred the book, Orchid Fever by Eric Hansen. If you're still in the Myakka region, PM me for a wonderful greenhouse. Orchid, of course! They've got a huge selection of healthy plants. Cin knows the spot - we're planning a field trip there the next time I come down to visit my folks!

    I got this plant. It has 3 spikes now. It is supposed to be free flowering. As long as it has more than 4 leaves, I would not worry about it.

I'll see if I can't find that post with the little guy in flower.

    I searched for a thread displaying the flowers, but to no avail! Im in the process of getting some of these guys, and would appreciate seeing yours in bloom. Your terrarium seems amazing as well, very impressed by the intervals of fan and misting ratios!

    Tindo there are some venders that carry Polyrhiza lindenii. PM me if you need a name.

    Tikva, keep in mind that most orchids like a lot of air movement. Polyrhiza, does not as I understand it. It prefers humid, more stagnant air. Considering from whence it hails, hardly surprising.

    I haven't seen any pics of flowers either, sake of silence. It would be nice to see some pics. Hint, Hint.

    Settled!

    I just bought half a flask of Haraella retrocalla. Word has it that some have flowered in the flask already! Other things I bought while I was at it: Aerg. punctata, Mystacidium braybonae, 4 chiloclista seedlings (one beautiful tangled mess!) and that flask! $73
