    Default Notylia barkeri

    First bloom under my care. The plant is kinda in recovery, so I really should have just clipped the spike. But I wanted to see it.

    When I see pictures like that it reminds me of being out in the rainforests, that's just like you would see it in nature, plant kind of tired looking, with a spike of beautiful flowers...

    Very interesting! Looks healthy, not like a recovering plant!
    Sue, I noticed a different location, did you recently move from St. Louis? And if so, how was it moving all the plants?

    I'm just here teaching for a semester, then back to St. Louis. So I only moved a large number of plants, as opposed to an unmanagable number of plants.

    I took my mounties (as I didn't want to ask the SO to mist them daily, as this would have been a significant burden added to the already significant burden of watering the rest) and most of the plants in spike or bud which weren't too big. They got packed into three 18" x 18" x 18" boxes, one with the top open for the tall spikes, which rode in the back of my car and the passenger seat on the drive down here. I could only do this because I got a furnished flat here, and thus only had to bring laptop, computer, clothes, and books. It all worked out quite conveniently.

    Oh, good!!! I was worried that you wouldn't have anything to do in your down time but grade papers.
