All the ways I grow are dictated by the choices I have made and the environment in which I live. Please listen and act accordingly
Rooted in South Florida....

Probably is. I stopped by Owen's after a hiking / brewery trip up to Brevard / Pisgah Forest. Really beautiful area!

I didn't realize looking glass orchids had closed. I think it was next to Owen's but it was closed for holiday when I stopped by. Shame!

Your plants are always fantastic, Bayard. Are these able to hold the blooms up without support?

Hi Jeff,
The inflorescence in the photos was previously staked.
I took off the stake for the images, and left it off because the inflorescence didn’t need it. However, it’s risky, because one false move and - snap!
