I think I've had it about 10 days now? I did take it off the mount it was on and attach it here, with the moss that was on it when it was on the mount. Some of that moss had fallen off, but I've...

Rats are known to tread water for up to 48 hours before eventually succumbing to exhaustion and drowning. And drowning in itself is an agonizing death. We have evidence of that from people who've...

I'm glad to hear that. The bucket traps are certainly effective, it's a shame they can't be made more humane. At least it's a bit better than those sticky traps, urgh- those things kill everything...

I don't know enough (or anything) about orchid experts to know who's right. This probably belongs wherever is more likely to be taxonomically accurate.

Please don't drown rodents. It's a horrible way to die. Good-quality snap traps are much more humane, they kill the animal instantly in the vast majority of cases.

It's not a pest animal's fault...

If it's not too much trouble to move the thread, I'd appreciate it, just for the sake of accuracy.

Ah, gotta love name changes. I like tillandsioides better, too- it looks so much like an air plant, except for the roots. I wonder why that is- coincidence, or some functional reason for the shape? ...

Phymatidium tillandsioides watering?

I picked up one of these little cuties from J&L orchids. I'm a bit unsure of how much to water it, though. Andy's Orchids says a mounted specimen should be watered 5-7 times a week, but the packing...

As far as I know, the only cultivar of L. astrophora available in the hobby is "Stalky". Some people don't bother putting the "Stalky" in because it's sort of implied.

Got any pics?

That's good to know, thanks. I'll probably have to pick one of these up at some point.

This one is a twig epiphyte, I think. So, decent humidity, air movement, constant moisture without getting...

You can't pot a keiki with no root, no, it'll probably die. Generally you want to wait until they have more than one root each.

I sent them an email. The basic care didn't list a dormancy, and neither does the entry I found on Andy's site. It just looks so odd- I wonder why it's like that? Maybe it's native to an environment...
