Bloom progression

(Another one) in flower mode

Synonyms (other earlier names) for this plant have changed throughout the years. Psygmorchis pusilla has been a fun and overall easy orchid for me (along with being a faithful bloomer). I have been growing these in small terrariums (6" x 6" x 8's and 8" x 8" x 12's) under bright artificial lighting for about 4-5 years. I'm glad I included this plant into my collection.

Temperatures usually range from 70-88F, relative humidity around 70-90%, misted once (or twice) a week. I grow these on mounts with some moss near the base of the plant. Occasionally, I will see questions pertaining to the longevity of this orchid along with comments about this plant "being short lived" and "blooming itself to death". My original plants are still alive & blooming. They have produced several new fans and bloom for me about every 2-3 months. The flowers last for a couple of weeks.

A few of my growing enclosures and a few plants currently "not" in bloom

Your tanks remind me of the days when I'd be sitting in a Dr's office being mesmerized watching fish in their tanks,lowering my blood pressure. My knowledge of fish was nil but if I saw your setup,I'd have an appreciation and understanding of what I'm looking at and enjoy it immensely. TY

Thanks... appreciate your comments and kind words!

Taking a few moments out of the day to stare at my plants is definitely a stress reliever (especially when life becomes hectic). I have grown quite fond of miniature orchids. They seem to "fit the bill" nicely for small terrariums.
