A while ago, I visited a small orchid display at a historical formal garden (Filoli Gardens) near where I live. It was quite small but also very lovely... I never got around to posting pictures until...

After I moved the Sobralia to a shadier area, it seems to have stopped dropping leaves maybe that's the secret to stopping all that wilting. The old leaves that were already browning continued to...

Thanks for all the discussion! I will be aiming for a well-drained mix for sure, it seems. Very nice growing, by the way, SouthPark! It's kind of amazing these tiny plants can survive in such chunky...

What an interesting little plant! Its accepted name is now Porpax spirodela. Unfortunately, it seems that Google's results for "Porpax" are mainly showing tips for Epidendrum porpax.

For the first couple of years when I was growing orchids (only phals back then), I didn't fertilize at all, and the plants still bloomed quite nicely every year. :)

Unfortunately, I don't have any specific metrics, but if I recall correctly, var. pedunculatum is on the smaller end. :)

Thanks so much for the tips! :biggrin: I'll be trying a pebble or scoria mix then, probably with something else thrown in to retain a bit more moisture.

Very nice! Yeah, it seems like T. cirrhifera is considered a synonym of T. orchidea. I really love the appearance of Trichoglottis species, but I don't think I could accommodate their pendant growth...

Sarcochilus (ceciliae) care

I wonder why the Sobralia didn't drop any leaves while it stayed outside for 2 weeks. Maybe those conditions were conducive towards retaining leaves...? They weren't very good conditions.
