    Nice, Tom! I love the foliage, do most sp of the genus look similar? I'm going to have to research if there are any that do well I-W...

    I answered my own Q. It looks like some may do ok in my climate. I'm gonna have to try one of the warmer-growing species.

    Alexis, some of them look similar but not all. I don't know any of them likes really hot climate. I grow my H. wangii, H. amesianum outside during the warmer months and they do fine for me. I believe H. kimbalianum may be able to handle warm condition(I will put mine outside this Summer).

    Thanks, Tom! This might make a better candidate for my orchidarium.

    For your orchidarium, I would recommend this one and the H. quasipinifolium(spelling check?) because of the miniature plant size and I do believe they can be grown under intermediate condition.
