Hello from Gulf Breeze, FL
Default Hello from Gulf Breeze, FL

Hello all. This is the first time posting. I’ve been growing orchids and other epiphytes now for about 20 yrs. I love my Bulbophylums. I hope to gain insight as well as impart it when I can. My daughter and I have a love and passion for our greenhouse and all the plants in it. On a side note, if anyone has any knowledge about growing Neobenthamia gracilis I’d love to hear it. I’ve had this guy for almost a year now and I don’t think it’s grown an inch. Healthy looking, but no growth. Very little info on culture for this guy, and what is out there is very conflicting. It’s currently in a clay pot with lava rock and sphagnum moss with a topping of bark to help hold in moisture. I feed it weekly to biweekly at 1/2 strength with a once a month flush. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. The last pic is of it. Looks almost like bamboo. Thanks

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

Use the search function from the top maroon menu, and search on the name. An OB member in sunny Texas has the plant outside in almost full summer sun.
