Default Habenaria radiata

Here are my two pots, each with 4 tubers growing. The one on the left has been inside since the tubers were planted in February; the one on the right has been outside. The outside pot has the more sturdy plants, but the inside plants are much taller. I wonder if I will see any difference in blooms, or if the outside pot will start to catch up now that the weather is warmer?

If I'm not mistaken, you'll see blooms in fall.

Last year I had blooms in August from a pot I kept inside the whole time. Maybe by having one in and one out, I will extend the bloom period; that is my hope anyway.

I have been interested in this species for some time. How difficult is it to grow? I read that they need to be kept in bog type conditions during the growing season and then dry in the winter. Are they something you are constantly fooling with?

Not really fooling with, just keeping moist. Mine sit in a saucer of water, not too deep. I water from the top and let some run through. Let the saucer dry out and repeat. My indoor plants are forming buds, the outdoor pot is behind.

After the bloom, I cut back on water and gradually let the pot dry. Then (last year) I took the tubers out of the pot and put them in a baggie with a little barely-moist moss. That went into the deli drawer of my frig. I had no rot, 9 tubers were planted this spring and 8 sprouted. I'm feeding pretty generously and hoping for bigger tubers this year; some of mine were pretty small--pea-sized.

Use the Search function in the top maroon bar and search on the name of this plant for links to some sites with really good growing information.

If you order tubers from Kusamono Garden they will send cultural info along with your order. Kusamono Gardens

Botany Boy is another good source:

Good to hear you bloomed indoors. I was worried I'd have to move mine outside where they would get neglected.

(I started later than everyone else. We'll see how they do.)

My indoor pot is on a south-facing windowsill, lots of afternoon sun but through a sheer curtain when it is really bright.
