    For some reason mine did not bloom for me this past year, but I do love this species. Zain do you give yours a winter rest? I take mine out of the pot and media late fall, they are all sitting on my back porch now leaning against the kitchen window.

    Going to Tamiami tomorrow and going to look for a few more if I can find any I don't have. There is a nursery from Taiwan that bring some the two times they come over for a show each year, already plan on stopping by.

    It seemed to love your condition as it flowers so fast.

    Grown in Zain's environment they will do very well if given a winter rest and no fertilizer starting in the fall, they love heat, humidity, lots of time release fertilizer and kept moist in season. Mine are under 50% shade cloth when in season and like the bright light.

    No wonder the seller forcing me to take the plant as this is so different from others.

    Ha ha Jack here I dont have winter rest I would be very happy if I can have it all the time hot and occasionally wet. Hope you will bring something which is very interesting....wondering whether you really can stop the habit to buy the new stuffs.

    It's a lowland species so easy to flower Azizan.

    Zain your winter rest would only be no water and fertilizer from fall to spring, they should do fine then. I was a good boy today only bought 3 this time only going for 1 so not bad I would think. A friend coming down for the show did bring me 2 bulbos he had divisions of that I did not have.
