    It's still recovering from the "Oops, I hid it out of reach of the sprinklers for 6 months" incident. But at least it's flowering. :cool:

    Very cool plant Jon. Hopefully what I have labelled as funalis turns out to be a true funalis

    First off, ya gotta water it. :) Secondly, I grow this with daily water, high RH, slight air movement, summer 67-90, winter 55-80, and brightish light (no shadows when I put my hand above it, but still pretty bright).

    Hmm, maybe mine's too bright. Otherwise, though, the thing is cranking.

    Alexis if this helps, mine has been growing at and average of 5000 foot candles (under a sodium halide lamp) and has just begun to form two spikes. My humidity and temperatures are similar to Jon's. I grew a different clone of this species under much lower humidity (50-60%) years ago and it was not at its best. Then again it wasn't a very pretty clone despite having an unusually long spur. Jon's is gorgeous!
