My Onc. didn't rebloom in the first year I had it. It grew a couple of new bulbs but that was it. But in the second year it grew a massively long spike and bloomed beautifully.

Great Thread. Sorry I've got nothing to add.

Monnierara Midnight Magic is at the top of my want list although I'm unlikely to ever find one. I'm adding Maxillaria tenuifolia, thanks.

LOL. I'm lucky I can grow my plants outside all year round. Beware of that Bat plant, it might get big quick. My plant grew like crazy last year.

Congrats, it looks in good condition for a half price rescue. I would repot it when your bark arrives, if you're careful you shouldn't stress the plant too much. I've never had a folded leaf...

I read flowering occurs 9 days after rain. Watching mine I'd say that's spot on. I was also thinking that low pressure was the trigger also but I got nothing after the cyclone went through. Although...

Thanks dendro king, when I pulled it out of the garden after the cyclone I thought 'that's new'. Too much rain makes perfect sense.
