    Default Cirr. Sandi Ting

    Cirrhopetalum Sandi Ting is (Cirr. sikkimense x Cirr. makoyanum).

    The buds were closed, and still small this morning. When I got home from the office I found that they had, in the words of Strong Bad's computerized giant disembodied head, a-sploded. 14 blooms on this umbel; clearly too many for an orderly arrangement. Also, in some of them the lateral sepals split apart, making the whole thing look really messy. Still nice, but not a good presentation. The other spike has only 10 buds on it, so it might turn out prettier.

    Smell is faint, mildewey/ozone.

    Default I think it's nice even with bad hair day! What did you use for the mount?

    I wave a Cirrhopetalum makoyanum in a pot, but it is always trying to escape ot of it.

    It's actually sphag and a little rockwool, attached to the board by some plastic netting. The ones with a lot of space between bulbs do very well mounted, as long as you can get them enough water. This mount retains moisture very well. I spray it down every morning.
