    I saw this at the orchid show and thought it was very sweet...had a tumbleweed feel to it.

    I like the fact that it is easy to propagate and plan to share it with some of my friends down the line.

    I fell in love with this plant when I was visiting Costa Rica. The blossoms littered the ground after windstorms in the cloud forest. Is it difficult to grow/bloom?
