    A not too commonly seen species. Probably one of my rarest, but thats not saying much, because most of ya'll have way more rare species than I do. :D

    Wonderful ... love it. I have P. muscifera (spelling?) but it hasn't bloomed for me in about 2 years. Any secrets?

    Very nice. Not many people grow this genus and they aren't that easy to bloom either.

    Love that. Anyone remember Mike Boyd? He posted one of his Polycycnis way back in ought-three and I've wanted one ever since. But alas, I never got one and then I discovered Angs and.... maybe some day.

    Thanks guys. I've been growing it with my phals but I looked at another site and they had it growing much brighter. My heater is underpowered but we never have really cold weather. If it's a normal winter night for us it's around 62 in the gh. Cold nights will get a bit cooler- maybe 58 ish. I have more or less been ignoring it. Its potted in a fairly moisture retentive media
