    They are divine!
    Are they difficult to grow? I'd love to try my hand at one.

    Difficult? I'm not sure, honestly. Up until I bought these, I had only 1 and only for a year. So far that one has seemed pretty content with my care. It's probably doubled or tripled in size, sending up lots of leaves. It might be thinking about sending up a flower spike. That's still up for debate.

    From what I've read Masdies don't need very bright light... maybe similar to phals. Can anyone verify that? They do like to stay on the moister side. They don't have pseudobulbs so they need the wet and the humidity. A lot are also cool growing. The ones I bought are hybrids specifically made to be more tolerant of warmer temperatures. My temps range from mid 60's to about mid 80's. I just make sure to water mine a little more often than my other plants. They're in 2 inch pots, most of them, so they don't take up a lot of space. But they do dry out quickly. I have mine in fine bark. I have a tendency to overwater and the bark lets me control that a little better. Otherwise, even with my inexperience with orchids, they've seemed pretty happy. No special care

    Ptaszek-
    FYI
    That was blank because the forum has a policy of not mentioning any vendors names and one of the moderators took it out. You may want to modify your latest post and take it out yourself, otherwise it will be removed again. Hope this helps.

    Oops! So sorry for the faux pas. I deleted the previous post. I honestly thought that my brain took a vacation on me and that I left a blank for myself to fill in later. I've been known to do that before.
