    Fantastic job with the Brachionidium! What are your conditions like? Also curious about the source, as it looks similar to a species recently being offered by an Ecuadorian company.

    Hi Evan!
    I grow Brachionidium in a few different conditions. I've got a couple that I've had for many years in a wine cooler. This one is from Mundiflora (sold as B. vasquezii, but it seems like it's not that) and I grow it in one of my cooler tents. I don't really control temperature but it seems like the nights are in the low 50s and the days are in the low 60s.

    Cheers!
    Alex
