I put together a new blog post with descriptions of stuff that I received in a new order from Asiatica Nursery. I got two Schismatoglottis spp. plants and a couple of other selections. These aren't orchids, but they are fun plants and potentially good choices for riparium growing.

Here's the link to the post.

New Order from Asiatica Nursery, Part I: Schismatoglottis plants


And here are shots of the two plants that I describe there.

This is not an orchid, but last week I got a pretty cool bloom from one of my riparium plants, Cryptocoryne usteriana.



Here's a close up shot for the spathe.

Very showy. Love the cryptocorynes.

I have another "not an orchid" post, but I was so happy to get blooms from this plant so here is a quick update.

The other night my Traub's spider lily (Hymenocallis traubii) bloomed. This one is not currently growing in a riparium, but I did have it in the 120-gallon Mexico semi-biotope last year. I kept the bulbs dormant this winter and they began to grow right away when I potted them up in a terra cotta pot with clay gravel for growing in a container pond.

The foliage is only about 12" tall--many other spider lilies are bigger--so this plant has the right size and shape for growing in a riparium. The flower stalk grew somewhat taller, to about 15".

I have a quick update for my 50-gallon setup. The plants are doing well enough.
