    Default New miniatures -Hapalochilus dolychoglottis and bulbo javanicum

    I took the plunge and bought two miniatures off someone I had bought from before, they are divisions from adult plants, ( hard to believe considering theyre mini size) and I was so excited when they arrived this morning as they are more mini than I had imagined. they are

    Bulbophyllum javanicum ( long slim one)
    Hapalochilus dolychoglottis ( tiny thumb sized one)

    Apparently the Hapalochilus dolychoglottis is quite rare so I better not kill it

    I think they are darling little things and really rather beautiful.

    Thanks Bruce Anne and Meg, I hope I can flower them and they do well for me, trouble is I have pretty vague instructions as to how to look after them but they like to be kept moist, intermediate temps and cant recall the light levels I will have to go look if I was told.

    Carrie, a google search reveals that the name of your rare Hapalochilus doychoglottis has apparently been changed, from bulbo (alkmaarense).
    Winter Blooming
    Shade to Bright; 1500-2500 Footcandles (indirect light,pronounced shadowing)
    Temps. Intermediate; 55°F min. to 85°F max.
    Daily Watering; 1 or more waterings per day (should not dry out)

    Hope this helps you to care for it the way I know you want to do!! Can't wait to see it in bloom.

    Thanks so much Anne, that is great news, I just sprayed it and I think its going to need spraying at least twice a day as it was bone dry and it doesnt like to dry out, I cant wait to see it flower, If I can make it flower LOL it is so pretty. Maybe it is just rare to get a hold of In Europe.

    Hey, my friend Joan doesn't call me the Queen of Googling for nothing.

    You know, if they'd stop changing names on our 'chids, we'd have a much easier time trying to find care instructions and photos.
