    Default Max. tenuifolia

    this was a nemesis of mine. I had one for years and couldn't bloom it. Last year I decided I had a non-blooming variety. I put out a call for divisions and received three of them. I grew each with a different culture to see what would work for me. Well this one was put in moss and with my Catts.
    the fragrance is wonderful

    Go for it and I will live vicariously through you, Ron & Cin!

    Next month, Fred Clarke-- 'famous for creating the black orchid' --will be our guest speaker at my orchid society. I will probably buy several orchids I don't need then anyway. LOL.

    Cheers,

    PS.. GET ONE!

    I have a 8 bulb division which bloomed this spring, and a 30 bulb division which is potted in moss and growing with my catts--and is sitting there glowering at me.

    Another one who's really tempted

    Isn't it satisfying to grow/bloom something that insists on being stubborn and uncooperative!

    Congrats on the blooms, Ron, and a lovely photo!

    Mine is putting up new growth, which is encouraging.
