    Your right Zain, but i think the blooms look more like a half open sarcochilus...then again, i see where your coming from!
    the difference in the leaves, is that they are about 1/50th the size of a phal lol, its 12:40am now, so give me several hours and i will do a comparison photograph lol

    Jordan,

    How much light does Drymoanthus adversus experience in the wild? The NZNOG site describes its habitiat as "Lowland to sub-alpine well lit lichen covered trunks and branches", while the IOSPE site suggests shady conditions would be more suitable. Would you say typical Sarcochilus light is too dark for this species? I'm getting a flask of this species soon so I'm trying to clear up the cultural requirements.

    I wouldnt bother with the ISPE guidlines, i trust the NZNOG more when it comes to NZ natives. I find them growing on the north facing sides of tree trunks in fairly high light conditions.
