As long as the pots can drain. Some people have used an open frame where the pots are suspended from the rim and hang down. You will just have to experiment and see how they grow this way for you....

Although you have probably already repotted your plant, this is not a pot I would recommend for most Cyms, especially Standards. Not only is it top heavy once you get a nice sized plant, but all the...

If the hybridizer is not breeding for heat tolerance, the other parent may not carry the necessary genetic makeup and hence reduce the ensifolium influence to a mere 25%. Breeding for early fall...

I tend to agree with SouthPark on this. When a plant is in trouble, I do not care if you are in Alaska, you need to unpot the plant and see what is going on.

Probably the most important factor to avoid loss of new growths or bloom spikes is adequate air movement. Most homes do not have this normally without the installation of fans.

I successfully grow sinense in conditions similar to those of Asian Cym Princess but for a mix I use classic Orchiata and 20% #3 Sponge rok. Top with spagnum and use a tall Asian pot. Repot yearly.

If you got it on Amazon it undoubtedly is a mericlone. Too bad you do not have the cultivar name, but it may show up. I do not think a lot of different cultivars of Neal Tadlock were mericloned.
