    They are spectacular, shaped alike but such different coloring.

    I like all of them as well... the albums are of course very special, but the coloured form with the white egg lip is what really does it for me! great plants Lien!

    btw, I was given a flask of this species and I am finding them really hard to grow.... any pointers?

    Hi,

    How long have they been out of flask? What medium do you have them growing in? How did you deflask? Did you wash all the medium out and seperate the plants? Or did you leave everything?

    Normally, when I deflask, I take the entire clump, wash as much of the medium off as I can and then put the entire clump, as in tact as possible, into a pot and fill all the empty areas with medium.

    They do well with a heavy dressing of oyster shell as well. I don't do this however. My mix contains oyster shells and granite chips.
