    Default Mtssa Shelob 'Tolkien' AM/AOS

    I've got this in the back of a shelf in semi-hydro. You'd be shocked at how small the blooming pbulb is - I let it stay bone dry for about 4 weeks not long ago. If anyone is interested in adopting it, let me know. I'm obviously not that interested in taking care of it.

    That is really beautiful! It certainly doesn't look neglected.

    Default Culture?

    I have one of these. Nice plant, and it has bloomed for me, but I think I am slowly killing it. How much water do they like?

    I have it under fluorescent lights in warm conditions year round. It is potted in clay pellets - I think hydroton - set up for semi-hydro. It was very happy while I remembered to fill the resevoir. I think it's an easy plant, and definitely tolerant of abuse.

    I repotted it and cut off lots of the old, dead roots. I don't water very often. Maybe I'll have to give it less attention...

    Oh well, at least it blooms
