    I know there are many of you growing this plant, And I thought I'd add my pictures
    to the pool.
    Not a vigorous grower, but blooms repeatedly from the same leaves. 001 (640x427).jpg

    Nicely done. Mine is not a vigorous grower either. I am getting a keiki forming now so I don't know if that is good (getting another plant) or bad (mother plant is stressed). Either way I hope the keiki makes it.

    None of the few clones around are especially vigorous. Though as they get to be larger plants they seem to pick up speed.

    Spiro, is yours potted or mounted?

    Marni, are you growing it? How?

    Yes, I have 3 collect clones and a few seedlings. All are potted in a fine bark mix at this time. I am growing them both cool and cool-intermediate.

    It was a gift from a friend. He said something about being from the "original collection" ,whatever that means. It came potted in sphagnum, so I left it as is.

    The original collection was by Roberto Escobar, I think in the early '70s. That was the only one know for decades and is a robust grower.
