Yeah, I guess so, just makes me wonder why orchidweb lists the bloom time as "Varies." There was a blog I found as well that shows it blooming square in mid May. I guess (I hope) I'll find out which timing pans out for me in the next 6 months or so. From what I've ghathered, being a bit colder at night and a bit drier may be a good way to get the blooms going. Drier is easy, cooler I think I can manage... If I manage any successes here, I'll come back with an update.

Yes, I have some spanish moss, I actually grabbed some from an orchid grower when I was visiting family in Florida. And I also have the dark form of this species, per the plant tag.

okay- sorry for the terrible pics, i have to garden at night


i would drape the spanish moss over it like a shawl- this does a few things- it protects it from getting scorched by the sun but allows for high light, adds some humidity and tells you when to water

i spray mine on any day it has not rained but i forget often. it gets midday filtered light (under a massive ficus) and then mid afternoon to sundown direct light

i have most of my other ghosts without mush moss as they just dont need it but i found this one gets bothered by too much sun and i wanted to hang them all together so i used the moss

it grows backwards so if it is mounted as mine is, make sure you leave it room to grow INTO the mount...the plastic thing both of ours are on is fine for accomplishing this



here is parishii and usneiodes for comparison

microcoelias get put on horizontal metal grates bc they like the litter

here is the growing rack where they hang

Thanks for the post, appreciate it. These are a little less commonly grown than some other orchids (knowing their needs, I understand why), so it's nice to get some hands on perspectives. Mine is doing well and keeps growing roots in all directions - literally everywhere, it's like an octopus - so I'm thinking I'm doing ok. I had hopes of removing it from it's current mount and putting it on something else after I can manage enough success to get it to flower, but it's so tangled that I think doing so might end up setting it back a lot.

I wouldn't try to remove it from its mount... if you want to give it more "mount room" (in case it wants to grow that way, it tends to send roots in all directions) just tie the mount to another mount, maybe try to gently guide developing roots with soft ties of you want to)
