    So excited that this little one bloomed for me! Although the buds didn't grow under my care I'm still enjoying the amazing cinnamon scent.

    P. S I was trying to go all pro on the photos. Hope I didn't fail miserably. So if you have any pointers go ahead, they will be greatly appreciated! 20200724_212633.jpg 20200722_180841.jpg

    Such a cute little thing. I have one also but it is only a so-so grower at the moment. It likely my fault thought. I have not thoroughly researched the species to really understand its growing conditions.

    I have just recently gotten two, so I think it will be some trial and error to get them to thrive since there is not much info on their requirements on the internet.

    I grow mine mounted without any moisture retentive material at the roots. The roots need to dry quickly. In the winter I mist them and occassionally give them a watering. I think your images are nice and the flowers were in sharp focus.

    Thank you for the feedback Marni! I've read up that they like to drop leaves quickly if they are kept too wet. So would humidity around 50% be okay?

    I don't think low humidity is the key. It is water remaining at the roots.
