    I've always liked many of the Habenarias but shy away from trying them .... I have come across very few folks who are successful growing them, which in turn has made me very leery about trying them myself (not to mention they aren't cheap around here) Congrats on growing yours so well!

    Nice. I wonder if you could tell us a bit about their culture? How do you grow them?

    Cheers,

    Hi BD, everyone

    Glad you all enjoy

    Habs, Pects, and Brachycorythis like a very dry rest and followed by a well watered summer growing period when growth exceeds an inch tall. They rot if wet when dormant.

    They can take to 10c in the winter dormancy and hot when in growth.

    I will post more later as I am flasking tonight
