Makes me wish I could grow vandaceous species. It has beautiful little flowers.
i have mine mounted on treefern slabs with a bit of moss around, but all are fairly young plants and new, so time will tell...
obviously, your potting media and growing conditions are perfect, but you can always try to mount your other plant.
will attach a situ shot.
Thank you very much for that Ron - most interesting. I have a nice piece of wood I collected in the forest here where I live, recently , and have been wondering what to do with it ; I'll give it a go.
May I ask a favour ? I'm giving my lecture of "Vandaceous plants - excluding Vanda and Phally" ( the sub-tribe Aeridiniae ) to Bournemouth Orchid Society at the end of this week - I have included shots of a couple of Tuberolabium species - cultivated plants in my collection , may I copy your pic - it will be of great interest to those of us who only too rarely get the chance to see plants in the wild ? I'll credit you of course !
Love the blue in these blooms, Geoff. You have such cool orchids!
What a beauty!
So nice to see such a healthy plant after your ordeal - I love the closeup photos - really nice shots.
The very cool weather in the UK is a definite advantage in growing this species ....
One thing I know about this particular species is that they don't like wet feet. They like to dry out between heavy waterings but enjoy high humidity and cool nights to coax them to flower. They do enjoy bright light. This is my experience in growing them here in my grow area and although I am able to grow them, I am having difficulty in getting them to flower because I am unable to provide them the very cool night temperatures that they are looking for.
