As far as I know, all dendrobium (and lots of other genera) species like to be on mounts better because they are epiphytic. There are a few dendrobiums that sometimes grow as terrestrials though, but most are epiphytic. I dont know if there is an exclusively terrestrial species.
Also, dendrobium capituliflorum?

i'm sorry, i wasn't very clear with my response. what i meant is that hopefully it can be grown in a regular clay pot (or similar) rather than a hanging basket or mount or such because some people (like me) can't accommodate those conditions.

I probably wont join but I'll help think of a few ideas.

A deciduous plant would be interesting but also not, because most are on a set flower-grow-dormancy cycle - but perhaps Nervilia plicata?

Some other ideas:
Dendrobium pachyphyllum
Eria ornata
Anyone can join, projects are open to everyone, providing that they can find the project plant! We generally check that it's available in the main world regions (US, and Canada and/or Europe depending on who joins the project). It's usuaully too difficult to insure availability for other countries, unless many people from one area join.

List has been updated to include all of the new suggestions!

I agree that it would be nice to have the choice in growing something mounted or potted since not everyone's conditions (or time) allow for mounts.

Thanks for setting this up Camille; I voted for other as well...a brainstorm; what if we all grew whatever seedling we wanted, but used the same type of pot [ie plastic, unglazed clay, terracotta ] and media? I've participated in a few projects in the past where we've focused on a specific plant or genus, but I don't think there's ever been one focused on basic culture parameters...and it should work regardless of our collections' temperature parameters...
Just my $.02,
Adam

I do like the idea, but am afraid it will set up some people for failure. Temperature/humidity ARE important factors, and people grow plants with a particular medium/pot type because it works well for their conditions.


I set up a poll to see exactly what sort of project people prefer to do, because then there's the greatest chance of it actually getting off the ground (which has been the problem in pat attempts). As it is now, people vastly prefer to do a standard type project, so that's what we'll do it seems. I would have loved to do a seedling or flask project though.

Well, it's just my two cents, but if there are several people on the board who have a strong interest in something different, say, a flask project, why couldn't those few members just get together via PMs or even a separate thread here on the board and make plans for what they will do exactly, and then share their results in a dedicated thread for that project. It wouldn't be called the "2019 Orchid Project," as that name and thread would be reserved for the one that wins the vote here and garners the most participants, but it just seems to me that, at any time of the year, for any reason at all, there's nothing stopping a few of our members from saying, hey, let's have a little fun and all try growing the same thing and discuss it on the board.

If there's some obvious issue with that idea that I'm overlooking, please let me know.

I completely agree with you. If some people prefer to do another sort of project in parallel, I'm absolutely in support of them setting one up if someone else will take the time to organize/run it. People are free to start whatever sort of project they'd like, and the organizer(s) are free to set whatever project rules they want.

At the moment I'd just be happy to get a standard plant project off the ground, and if 2 different types of projects are running at the same time that's even better. If everyone decides a different sort of project is better instead of this one, that's fine too.

Looks like we have a reasonable amount of interest (based upon the number of votes that we have). I agree that we should attempt to get this standard project off of the ground, and if others want to also organize a seedling type project (or any other) as camille alluded to, that is also great.

Do you think we should wait for more interest/ideas or should we start voting on plants?
