I wish you the best, Ryan.

Someone posted a photo of a blooming vandaceous plant in S/H at the "Official S/H Forum", and it was the first photo evidence I've seen of folks successful with them, so maybe there's hope for your tolumnia!

Ray I planted it in a pretty tall container with the hope that it'll have the option to stay out of the reservoir if it chooses but that the plant won't dry out in minutes either and them desiccate like so many bare root plant will for me.

I'm moving the plant to a spot where it'll enjoy a decent amount of bottom heat. Got to spur root development.

Bottom heat is likely a good idea. Mine threw out two spikes once I moved it to bottom heat this winter. Maybe a coincidence but who knows.

I bought mine planted in a plastic net pot, potted in CHC. That's a little different from the usual clay pot and charcoal and it has been happy now for almost a year. I make sure not to over water and leave it for a few days quite often so it does get dry spells.

Good luck with S/H

Do you have drainage holes in the glass pot?
