    Post Psychopsis Mariposa

    After a lot of effort, brought back from the terrible SH media to bark and TLC with Superthrive, the results speak for themselves how it took care of itself.

    One of these days I will try a Psychopsis despite the ridiculously tall flower spikes -- really like their flowers. Just wish there was a "mini" version.

    How did you achieve this amazing result, here in the UK? I know how hard it can be, specially when hoping beyond hope that our weather might become something closer to "normal" in its patterns. So, do you grow under lights to get this wonderful example?

    Hi Charles, this has been growing with everything else on my windowsill in our conservatory. Do you know anything about growing Cymbidiums in the UK?
