    I bought this about 2 years ago. I was happy just to keep it alive and thrilled to have bloomed it. Flowers are about 2" across.

    True, but D cinnabarinum isn't much of a challenge. :poke:

    I'm sorry, that was cruel. But fun.

    How didja get it to bloom? I think mine is coming out the other side of a sulk, so it's time to get 'er to bloom.

    I just went out and found it and it has two spikes. It seems to be doing fine but it is not breaking multiple leads. It's probably time to remount it or maybe put it in a pot and give it some more warmth.

    Does anyone else grow this? How is yours doing and how do you grow it?

    I grow mine on stick mount, warmer summer, cool&slightly drier winter, light is medium/bright shade, good air movement. It is not a difficult species..., but the flowers last about 10-14 days and my plant is semi-deciduous, which I think it is normal for this species.
