    This is weedlike here. Almost invasive. Adds to the evening ambiance...

    One of the first orchids I bought many years ago (from Frank Fordyce) was Little Stars, and it has grown and flowered for me ever since. (Though nothing like yours, I must admit, with a hint of jealousy). I have divided mine many times and sold or given away pieces, and it still grows and blooms, as you say, like a weed.

    San Francisco Peninsula. I have always grown mine indoors under high intensity light, but am trying a piece outside this winter to see how it does.

    Gorgeous. I can smell it from here. This is one that I divide regularly and give away pieces of from time to time. My clone is just so big/tall and it's hard to accommodate under lights on shelves. When I bought it, I wasn't even thinking about the fact that it might grow tall and just assumed it'd stay around the same size as my nodosa. Ha. I keep it for the fragrance, though.
