    I may have to rethink my belief that I can't grow this species. Thanks.

    Lovely, JonP.

    Marni, I don't know how you watered your plant, but this species, Tolumnia tetrapetalum and Brassavola subulifolia are growing in the same low land area in Jamaica(Duncans Bay), where it is dry from Nov. to April, sometime it doesn't get any good rain for weeks.
    I would grow it much drier during the winter months if...

    Thanks, Tom. I tried this very early on when I watered everything all the time and never let anything even approach dryness. Fortunately, I got over that.
