    Fabulos Elio! I have a seedling with its 1st buds just starting to show (after 2 1/2 years). Should it still be getting regular watering or let it dry out a bit more?

    Sophronitis cernua, especially if mounted, do not like to dry completely, needs good brightness (always be careful not to get the direct sunlight in the hotest hours), a good relative humidity, 70% - 80% , fertilizer force 1/4, 80 ppm, does not need a winter rest and plenty of ventilation, hi.


    Sorry, wrong translation, read:
    "does not need a winter break but good ventilation, hi."

    Thank you Elio! You answered just as I had hoped.

    Not one that I know. Flowers larger than coccinea ?
    Is this just two spikes ?
    Certainly one for my wish list !

    Very nice colour! Your collection is interesting in that you exhibit so much restraint, only collecting miniatures (and you grow and bloom them very well). I'm sure the rest of us don't have so much willpower. lol
