nice pic! Where in the world does this species come from? and what are the growth conditions?
cool thanks heaps-will start looking for one. In new zealand its hard to get any North american or European orchids. Also what kind of wood would you recommend for mounting this species?
one needs to be careful of driftwood that has been in salt water. Orchids roots are sensitive to salt and it takes quite a bit to leach the salts out of driftwood.
Hey thanks-i probably wouldnt use driftwood anyway for the reasons said by ron, but ive got a ton of native Rimu tree wood which our native-bulbophylum pygmea likes growing on, as wel as other podocarps. Ive been wondering what i could do with other than use it for firewood-thanks though for giving me an idea!
