    Default Thunia Bensoniae

    Here are pics from one of my Thunia Bensoniae I flowered this season. I hope to get some pods on it and cross to T. marshalliana

    Very nice! How do you grow this one, Brett? Winter rest?

    Cheers,

    Hi BD

    It is very similar to grow as for T. marshalliana and Gattonensis which is a hybrid of the two. I want to get the later, but cant locate any in SE Asia.

    YEs, a definite winter rest, and I think it likes it cooler than marshalliana. I grow mine at 28c max in the summer

    A pic in the wild. I forget who sent me the pic. Taken in the north of Thailand. It grows both as a terrestrial and an epiphyt. It does not really attach to wood or such with the roots as say a vanda or Dend, but roots become embedded in the moss and enable it to cling.
