    blc? slc? who the heck knows! I love this little guy though. Flowers are about as big in diameter as a quarter, maybe a bit bigger.

    Growing off wine corks in my south window

    yep, super tiny Harry. The plant itself is also small. I could send you a little piece in trade for something if you want.
    I bought it in a grocery store unlabeled a few years ago because I had to have it, and now it drives me nuts that I don't know what it is.

    Well, who cares what it is. It's pretty nice. I suppose it's worm growing. I would love a bit. I will PM you.

    So what do you do? Cut worms up and mix them in the soil?? :D

    Nice plant whatever it is. I'm not much for flowers (foliage person) but wow, those are awesome!

    Haha. I heard worm casings make for good ferts (maybe not for orchids though).

    looks similar, the leaves on mine remain more slender. This is exactly why I no longer buy things w/o tags!!!
