    Here's is my M. capense, blooming for the first time with 2 spikes. I'm always amazed how these tiny species can put forth so much in flowers!
    In my intermediate greenhouse, misted about every other day.

    Enjoy!

    Peter.

    Thanks so much. I love this genus.

    MrB, do you know why they died?

    "MrB, do you know why they died? "

    I really don't. I typically kill things by overwatering. But having killed one capense already, when I got the second one I was very careful about not overwatering. I *might* have sprayed it with physan prior to death. I really don't know. It was a very nice one from Andy too. :cry:
