    It is currently in a 5 inch pot and will need to have some fresh media in the spring but can go back into the same size pot.

    This is an interesting genus, with several species really worth cultivating. P.imbricata and P. chinensis are the only two I have ever seen on offer - I have two examples of the latter, which I grow in sphagnum and both are up to 7 or 8 leads with as many spikes. I wish I could get more, but orchid entrepeneurs who go out into the jungle, collect a few plants, propagate from them, and then visit shows or even just email me with offers, are not very common at all in Borneo and Malaysia, where most of thse species are found. In fact thenext time I meet one will probably be the first !

    I have only seen the imbricate, I got this from a nursery here in Florida that was going out of business and he had some weird interesting things so of course I had to buy it. After posting this on FB I was very surprised that so many people had never seen it before!
