Milan, I think we like a lot of the same things. Great close-up too. What is it growing on?
I really like those bizarre flowers. Very cool!
Very nice Milan
That is outstandingly cool.
Well done all 'round.
Cool the original Bug eyed monster!!
This plant is growing on bark of locust tree. I am using bark of poplar and willow also.
New leaves are brown and flowers are only short-period (several day) living.
That's really nice, Milan. Thank you.
I grow mine in the cool to intermediate range, 50F & 56F minimum nights.
I've never tried any of the woods you mention. Do they hold up well? I was using grape vine (free by the truck load when they replant vineyards here) but find that much of it rotted in a couple of years, especially the thinner pieces which I like for minatures.
I grow mine little warmer, now in winter 15 - 20°C (cca 60 - 70F). Beside this plant I have second in wood-basket, as mix is coco-chips with cut moss-sphagnum, but this one isn't blooming yet.
Grape vine I have been using earlier, but now most frequently using bark of old poplar from river (it is fall down after storm). It holds well for many many years.
