    I wasn't sure that this was correctly labeled since all I had seen were all white. But I checked have confirmation that it is properly labeled.

    I saw this on FB and it is stunning Marni! I should have got some down in Redlands. What's the difference between this and philippinense?

    The lip is different. For me, this one grows and blooms well.:) Amesiella philippinense needs warmer temperatures and this does well in cooler temps. Here is a link to monticola that shows the difference.

    The friend who sent me the link to the paper I noted, had this to say about the difference: It is easy to tell the difference, monticola grows and philippinense dies.

    Very nice both Marni and Bob. Bob, I'm curious about this moss in hardware cloth method of growing. Do you find that it keeps roots in check?

    the moss is just there for the moisture, the roots are all around, inside and outside. thanks, bob.
