    Not to diminish anyone's efforts to save a dying orchid, but I, too, saved a dumpster bound Cirrhopetalum. When I brought it home and unearthed it, I found all the roots dried and the PB's shriveled. Lucky for me, the grower was kind enough to help me save this plant giving me specific instructions. Now it looks pretty good but has never flowered. So what am I not doing? I water it to keep the PB's reasonably plump. I feed it regularly. And keep it moderately warm. Is the plant too young and I just have to be patient and in time the flowers will come?

    Give this one more light. It looks really dark green. Perhaps that will help it be moved to bloom.

    Cheers,
