    Very tiny plant with nice sized flowers. Needle-like leaves upon thin pseudobulbs approximately 1 inch long.

    I know that a lot of people believe that all seeds can/should be grown warm. I don't think it works that way. Cool growing plant's seed germinate and grow in the same climate as the parent plant. If you grow a cool/cold species in warm conditions when it is a seedling, you may kill off some or all that can't take the heat. If you want to select out warmth tolerant plants that is one way to do it. I grow seedlings out of flask in the same conditions as the parent plant.

    I am afraid I killed mine...growing it right along side my D.cuthbertsonii,which is doing fine....it was fine one day and started dropping leaves the next.It was slightly dryer than normal,and very sunny the day before.It was in a terrarium,pushed right up against the window to stay cool....any ideas,and is there any chance of saving it,only a few rather dry looking needles remain.
