    Nice! Mine have been flowering a while now and the weather is not cooler... not sure the flower signal but it went along with me watering more ( as it is really hot) so maybe that was my trigger.

    You use a 1:1 aps/perlite media? How often & with what do you fertilize? How often do you water or do they sit in water?

    Thanks Jim!

    That's correct Ron, but I haven't been able to find APS locally anymore after Home Depot discontinued their Schultz stuff here in Calgary so I have switched to vermiculite and perlite for the time being (Ive also tried pure perlite and pure APS with fine results). I fertilize very little as they catch a few fungus gnats generally, but when I do I lightly spritz with 1/4 strength orchid fertilizer about once every 4-6 weeks. They sit in about 3/4" of water and I refill the trays 24-48hrs after it has dried up. Pots are 2 1/4" wide and 3" tall. The top 1/4" of the media is usually dry so the plants are forced to send roots about 0.5 - 1" down. This weekend I am planning to uproot 1 or 2 of the pings in the vermiculite/perlite media so I can see how their roots are doing.
