    My favorite species of these "creatures"

    I like the heavier spotted "cuppier" one at the bottom best.

    Those are really nice! I like the bottom one too.

    Is there any trick to get these to bloom?

    Thanks, I'll ramp it up some. I thought I was burning it before so I pulled it back, but I think maybe it was just drying out too much before I mounted it.

    I like them both quite a lot. Just have one bulbo here now...but could sure see adding more. Do people have general success NOT growing bulbos in a greenhouse?

    So different! I love them both, but the 'tall' one is my favorite of the two.

    Cheers,

    Jenny, I grew some prior to having access to a greenhouse but they do like it humid. I grew them in a light cart that was enclosed in a plastic covering
