    This is one of the plants I got from LA Orchid Connection.
    The group picture is all of the plants I got at the nursery. The potted plant along with the one to the far left are Sobennikoffia humbertiana. The middle plant is Rangaeris amaniensis, and the one to the far right is Angraecum leonis.

    Congratulations, lots of flowers!This specie is always stunning for m.I had one but it died, its root didn't attack on the slab.Was it the same for you? I used cork and you?

    Thanks Egoista but I can only have no blast credit as I bought it in bud. I just mounted it, so I can't really tell you my experience about the roots attaching to the slab. I'm using a piece of a cypress tree (Taxodium distichum) which is native to my area.

    Nice haul. Aside from the Eurychone, they seem fairly small. What kind of price range were they, if you don't mind my asking? H&R was selling Sob. robusta a year or so ago but I don't know that I've ever seen humbertiana for sale.

    All of the others were seedlings. I have a robusta that I bought from Oak Hill about a year ago, and I've seen humbertiana for sale at Botanica Ltd. Also you have a PM.

    Thank you,
    I'm trying to grow a Sedirea japonica and other plants on slabs of Cupressus sempervirens wood stripped of bark.
