    One of my favorite orchids. I have two small pots which I hope to merge and get one huge mass of them.

    @Zain, i know what you mean! we have an aircon unit and in summer when it gets close to 40*C some days (WOW) we haveit going 24/7! the power bill skyrockets! doesnt help the power companies rip us off bigtime here...

    @Jo, i cant imagine it would be too expensive to buy in the US, maybe another OT member might have some too?

    @Craig, i have just moved all mine into an old plastic pot saucer, its perfect!
