    Yew; Certainly the third times the charm. I am curious what the secret or cultural conditions are to succeed in growing and blooming this Asconopsis? It certainly is lovely. AL

    Pray! Hahaha. Seriously, not much and I'm not going to repot it until it shows signs of distress. It is going to receive the same treatment as my other plants - no coddling, no special treatment - may be now and then sing to it.

    I'm quite confident this one will survive as the vendor said this is one of the 50% survivors from the batch he imported.BTW this is the 'Elmhurst' HCC AOS clone; another clone is the 'York' also an HCC. No Ascps Irene Dobkin has ever obtained a higher award. For me the 'Elmhurst' clone has better form.

    I don't think anyone has ever attempted to repeat the cross - its bad reputation as a difficult grower has deterred many, I suppose. I would really like to see the many modern phals crossed with Asctm miniatum. A Thai nursery recently offered a Ascps Irene Dobkin x Phal Carmela's Pixie but the picture used to illustrate the cross was an Irene Dobkin!
