    so i was following links to get more info on these and low and behold... there is the king of athletic shorts himself... im convinced all orchid roads lead back to this forum... i had previously missed out on the other shorts, but these seem like a trendier version of what my pe coach used to wear in some other decade we need not dwell upon... this one is from the phil.s im told? im hoping that with my close proximity i should be able to track one down though ive never seen one here as far as i can remember...but i do tend to do my weekend market shopping in a state only could have truly appreciated, not quite hunter s., but jolly... so if i go hunting one of these this weekend should i be asking for a well seasoned plant? i was skimming the older comments and saw something about long waits....i dont mind a couple of years but....my patience does have its limits!
    and yes, you do sport the shorts rather well... just reminds me how much i need to drag my ever increasing mass to the gym!

    Hi Shane,

    Arachnis grows fast and very large, in full sun and higher humidity, but so far i wasnt able to rebloom them.
    Vendors often sell just top cuttings, make sure a few roots are there and thats all its needed.

    ...and thanks for the sporty compliments, lol.

    Vey lovely flow-aeris and very good size as well. In Malaysia we grow them out in the open sun. Notice the shorts are tighter than the ducky's. Have you checked out Cristiano Ronaldo's (of Real Madrid) shorts ?
