Welcome!

Photo didn't upload (if there was one) While some have said that you need to have 5 posts to post photos, I have see people successfully post photos right away. If not, you could post a link to the photo on Google Drive or other online service. I'd love to see this. And information about how you grow it would also be great.

My bad! It looks like I need to to have 5 posts. I've tried attaching a link with google photos and flickr. Either doesn't seem to work.

Anyway, I grow mine indoors and it seems to flower early. I have P. graminifolia and it is still in bud waiting for it to open. It's a fairly easy growing terrestrial orchid. I grow mine in a well draining mix and keep moist in a bright indirect area.

Link works... that is beautiful!

Do you reduce water during dormancy? If so, when do you resume watering? Under lights or window light?

It's my first year growing this. The lady from whom I got it told me to keep it dry during dormancy. I'm currently growing it indoors under grow lights and I plan to move it back outside in the fall season.

Do you plan on a refrigerator dormancy? I grow this one in the ground year round in the mountains of PA, zone 6B.
