    Do you dry it in the winter?

    As it has to support 12°C during nights in winter, I only water it once or twice a week.

    Thanks for the information. Your culture sounds similar to mine, but your plant looks much better.

    Hi Gilles

    That's a cool plant. It is almost leafless, only very small leafs, right?

    Love it!

    Wow, I didn't know there is a leafless Mystacidium! It's beautiful! Is it scented?

    Yes, almost leafless. This one has only very little leaves, but when the plant is young, the leaves are longer.
    It scent just a little bit during evenings!!
