    It's very normal for these not to even sprout until mid June. I started mine in April indoors in pots, moved them out in May and didn't see a thing until mid to late June. Not sure why yours didn't grow.

    So where do you get them? (The kinds that grow really big....)

    He'll cave in. Just work on him a bit more. Heck, it probably won't even bloom for a couple of years.


    hmm, errrrr I have some extra konjac

    I'm with Brutal on this one. Ewwwww. NO WAY I'd grow that thing anywhere near here. Even the dying flower in that first link looks like a disgusting purpling swollen tongue or something. Nasty! But you boys have fun. You can send me all your fragrant floofy orchids which may die in the fumes....
