    Default Pleuro palliolata 'Reiki'

    I have tried to bloom this one for years but ended up with bud blast or with keikis only every year. I had some buds blast last month and I thought I was going to have all keikis again but I have some leaves blooming I think I now have the culture down.

    Ooo! Not as "mini" as would be ideal but do-able! Now the next hurdle -- intermediate to warm grower?

    I don't grow much of anything cool Intermediate to warm [with a leaning to warm] I seem to do better at.

    High humidty required?

    I am now growing it in a plastic pot of bark mix and on the bright side, constantly moist. Winter lows are 60 summer highs are 80 for the greenhouse. Humidity around 60%
