    which part of the world are you living in, forrest? i really want to try my hand at some pleuros (esp. dracs and masdes) and i dont get how to maintain the 'cool' part....

    is this in a basement area?

    im just dying to create cool intermediate humid conditions for these plants (just dont know how).

    I am in coastal central California. Weather is pretty mild here. The pleuros seem fine with it, Dracs on the other and I have been struggling with. I can make them spike like nobodys business but I cant get them to not blast. Hopefully when I move my grow area into the "grow shed" that the increased humidity will do the trick. This year I swear I have had about ten spikes on my Dracula chesteronii and lost every single one.

    looks like a fuzzy toilet seat to me.

    Good macro shot, Forrest!

    sorry to bump an old one, but I recently took a much better photo of this little guy. He is very happy since moving into the greenhouse and is starting to go nuts.

    The tiny ones are still the best. I really like it.
