Cathy and Kathi, I know a couple/some growers just outside of Miami, FL bloomed out the common varieties nicely.
nice collection... i'm beginning to move into the neo direction, as they are small, cool, cool tolerant, and smell wonderful from what i hear. i stated with 2 very small darwinaras, but the came in clay 2" pots with sphag, and immediately rotted for me. so it has been a while since i tried again, but now i have a seedling ascofinetia cherry blossom (i put it in a small treefern pot), and a nakamotoara apricot (in a small clay pot with normal orchid bark mix) that are growing, but slowly. wondering if they can handle this sphag method? or would they rot? my little darwinaras (that i cannot find more of for the life of me) rotted SO QUICK that i am scared to try again, but they were not mounded above the pot this way, and stayed way too wet... so maybe that was the problem?
