    Default Epi. peperomia update

    33 blooms now with 11 more on the way. The plant view is the front of the mount so they can't all be seen. Time to stop fertilizing and start cutting back on water. By December it will be all shriveled up and red.

    I didn't know these needed a winter rest. I am down to a small scrap of one. I finally have it growing roots and new leaves. I would be afraid to let it dry out now.

    I had problems with it at 1st because I was told to only water once a week. I got it at the beginning of March just when it should have been growing well. It languished for almost a year, red stem's and shriveled leaves. Then I started watering twice a week, then three. During the summer, its outside in dappled sun and gets soaked in a bucket for 15 minutes ever day. Now it just gets a fast dip each morning because its been sucking up dew. When it finishes flowering it go's in a west window with fluorescent's about 10 inches above. Water is just a quick dip 3 times a week until February. If your's is showing growth I wouldn't let it dry out too much either Karin.

    That's what happened to mine at first. I tried mounting it which didn't work for me - didn't water enough. Then I just stuck it in a small pot of sphag and put it out in the shade house for the summer. It got rained on and I sprayed with the hose almost every day. It hung on. A few months ago I did a weird thing. I got a small round fish bowl container, put a round, porous lava rock in it and filled it with rain water up to near the top of the rock. I just sat the plant on top of the rock. I spray it most days with plain rain water or sometimes rain water with very dilute fertilzer. It has doubled in size.

    So, found out what the ribbons were for at the show I displayed this plant in. Kirk, (Paphmadman) you were right. It didn't fit with the other plants on the society table (plastic pots) so they put it in as an individual entry on its own table. As written up in our society newsletter 'Congratulations to Chris Varady too. His Epidendrum peperomia was entered as a separate display and it was first in that display category with a second place ribbon for the plant itself'. I believe it was the only individual entry.
