One of the weird LOC offerings. A little small for my taste, but interesting
Calvin, don't get rid of it too fast. Once it has multiple growths it can be a ball of flowers. And they last quite well.
Very nice, Calvin. The flowers may be small, but the shape of individual flower is quite amazing. Mine (also from LOC) has been declining gradually, and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any culture tips?
Naoki sorry for not replying earlier. When I got it, it had several growths, and I lost lots of them but the last one survived. It's only my first season so I'm not entirely sure, but I'm trying warmer, moist, and a bit shady in the summer, and cooler drier and a bit brighter in the winter
Calvin, it likes to dry between waterings. It will grow well in intermediate or warm conditions. I grow them without any moisture retentive material at the roots. Some of mine get daily water and others are hanging were they get water every 3 to 4 days. Either way works, just don't keep it so damp that moss can grow on it.
Thank you, Calvin & Marni. Hmm, I'm keeping it too moist, and it is probably too late to save it...
I followed Marni's advice and decided to keep this one. She was right - it has grown on me and I've come to really enjoy it! I had some nutrient problems leading to leaf yellowing, so hoping this season's growth are more attractive.
Looks like it's doing well. Mine didn't bloom at all the first year after I got it, but it should be blooming plenty in a few weeks.
It's beautiful! It was a good decision to keep it
