    Ray, that is a beautiful leaf and habit. I knew what the flowers looked like but not the plant. It looks like those leaves must be 3-4" long?

    Hey, Ray. I was great to meet you at the MOS meeting. I loved your talk. I was thinking of buying one of your Pleurothallis pectinata from your site and I was wondering what sort of RH is necessary to keep it happy. My RH is generally between 50-60%. Would it be happy with that? Also I bought some KLN, Innocucor and KelpMax from your site and I was wondering how I should go about using them, dosage and frequency of application wise?

    Wow those are some gigantic leafs for a small flower. The plant looks so perfect & healthy that it almost doesn't look real, if you know what I mean.

    I believe the plant would do fine in your conditions. As to the other questions, how about dropping me an email - no need to clutter the board with info others may not need to read.
