    I started that from a top. It's been growing and producing for about 5 years now. They're quite tasty too.

    Wow, so many! I guess at least they don't need watered as often as orchids.

    I noticed some of them are blooming. Do you have any secrets? We have one that's getting taller, but no flowers since the ones that were on it at the time of purchase.

    I give them as much sun as they can take, feed them well all summer, and give them a completely dry rest through the winter. The rest is up to them.

    Very nice collection Jeff. So neatly arranged.and planted.Mine really needs a drastic replanting. Been spending too much time on the orchids and neglecting the cacti and succulents.

    Thank you for the tips. Maybe with a couple of changes we'll have some blooms on ours next year too.
