    First blooming for this seedling. Started to set a spike in September. Slow bugger! Just opened this morning so will flatten out a bit... lobii 1.jpg lobii 2.jpg

    I have been wanting to try this one. I see there is no moisture retaining material on the mount. Does it get completely dry between watering?

    Hi Kelly, Yes it does. It really does not like staying wet long. This one is a bit backwards from anything I have grown yet. It pretty much went dormant from July or so until Oct or Nov. Then came out of it. Very slow too. But cute! I got this one from LOC.

    Thanks Naoki, flower is open all the way today. The cute little lip wiggles in the breeze like a bulbo! lobbii 3.jpg

    Sorry to hear that. Try again, They don't like to be wet!
