    Hi Branka,
    I also have a Bifrenaria aureofulva but have yet to get it to bloom. I understand these plants need a "rest" period in the winter months. Can you please give some advice on this? I have never grown one of the species that requires a rest and this info was not passed on by the grower.
    How long do you let them rest?
    Does this mean no water at all or should they be misted, set on a humidity tray? How long of a rest?
    I have mine growing in a bark mixture, would you recommend something else?
    Currently in a south window that gets full sun in winter but shaded in summer, any advice regarding my light choice?
    Temps in my house range from 60-68 in the winter. 9 pm- 7am temp is set at 60, 7 am-3 pm set at 65 them 3 pm-9 pm set at 68. Summer temps range from 60-80 depending on outside temp. I have no central a/c in my house and I live in Montana. No idea what the humidity is but I successfully grow and flower a wide range of species from paphs, phals, mltnps, dens, SLC, ONC, etc.
    I would love to see this little plant bloom!
    Any advice you have is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks
    Vicki

    Rest usually means

    a) fertilization is withheld to stress the plants (similar to what happens in their natural habitat)
    b) exposed to higher light in winter (similar to what happens in their natural habitat)
    c) temperature is cool/cold and dry.

    After checkin, to make sure, yes I do have this in my collectio. Last flowered in 2016 I think. Flowered well, but then sulked for a year. Now has just one new growth, maybe a couple f inches high - should have 4 or 5. Maybe i'll repot.
