    I am tempted to try to grow something at my office desk, which has a big window facing NW, but the window sill is basic, so no room for a plant. It gets direct light thru the window but not on my desk, which only gets fluorescent and indirect light. I need to check my light range in the office (at home too) to see how much I have. My philodendron does well and my lucky bamboo did okay (I gave the bamboo away)

    I LOVE the leaves too. My favorite leaves are on a Paph venustum.

    Oh my gosh! I have that variety of Paph venustum!

    But the one on the link is surely a winner! Hopefully one day mine will be almost as impressive.
    (I wonder if Tim has seen that photo of the award winner...)

    guess you won't be dividing your plant anytime soon... imagine 5 flowers all at once!!! Brain overload!!!

    it was funny scrolling down to the part that says "Award for rare flower" and they have a fairly common Dendrobium linguiforme var nugentae (aka Dockrilla nugentae).. well it's common enough here in Oz

    and above that, I have never even heard of Epi nocturnum!!!
