    Most holcoglossums are quite easy plant. In guangzhou,
    only Holcoglossum kimballianum is easy to plant while difficult to bloom. The others are easy blooming.

    A wonderful collection of Holcoglossum species! I am very fond of this genus as well and I especially love your H. flavescens.

    It may help (for blooming) if you grow H. kimballianum cool, very bright and slightly drier in the winter months.
