    A delicate species with sparkling white flowers. I've been growing this for about 5 years and feel like I've finally found the right spot for it. Growing intermediate, moderate light with a drier winter. It isn't getting a severe rest, but misting once or twice a week.

    Very nice! And great photography. Those are so small -- and the combo of small and white can be tricky to capture. Beautiful Marni.

    Love that genus! I've killed way too many....
    But now i've managed to keep one alive for a couple of years I think so maybe i figured it out. More more more!

    No. :(
    But i'm getting closer! Just finished putting another coat of paint on the inside yesterday. Need to get some fittings for the southern burner that is currently living in my dining room. Then....i'll be really close.

    The greenhouse will help a LOT! In my experience killing these--they dehydrate incredibly quickly and dont' recover well. Having a greenhouse has helped me immensely because you can keep it so much moister than your living room. :)
