    Hi all,
    Here is the updated Pleione picture. The Azalea is still flowering and I haven't watered the Pleione yet since the Autumn, I'll start to water it as the flower dies, and then it will get a lot of water all the time it is in leaf.

    Hi all,
    They are nice, but they don't flower for very long.

    I originally had 2 non-flowering size pseudobulbs given to me by some-one who had grown them from seed. It is a "grex" and there are better selected forms like Pleione Vesuvius "Leopard"

    I'd told them that I'd killed plenty, and he told me they were "easy" if you kept them really dry until the leaf (really the new roots) were in growth. I'd always kept mine just damp through the winter, and the new shoot had rotted off when I start watering them more freely in early spring.

    They grow a new pseudobulb every year, so damage to the new shoot is nearly always fatal.

    cheers Darrel

    Not much yet, but here is my little baby Bulbophylum on a little trunk and a bed of Sphagnum and some other moss. They should be easy to grow, but this one is still very young, tiny and still strugling a bit to gather strenght. Don't know if she's willing to flower this year. :)

    No idea as to specific species. Worth noting, that these are the first two orchids ever that I've been able to keep going. These are also the first orchids I've watered/ misted with (EI) aquarium water. ;)

    Darrel, it looks like they don't receive too much light, isn't it?
