    Thanks for the feed info, guys! I need to start dosing my blueberries a little heavier, I'm seeing nice top-growth from the little supplementation I've already done.

    Have either of you seen any sensitivity of Vaccinieae to nitrates? Some online sources say blueberries are lacking in nitrate reductase enzyme and will suffer or die if fed high nitrates for a long time. Not sure what precisely constitutes 'high nitrates' nor how immediate or reversible possible effects would be, and of course the bulk of the research to date has been on temperate terrestrials and so may or may not pertain to the tropical epi/lithophytes, which seem likely to have somewhat different rhizosphere conditions and associated microbes.

    Chris, the obvious success of your plants on the nitrate-containing Better-Gro fertilizer does suggest it's not necessarily an issue for (all) the epiphytes, or at least not an immediate and/or serious one. Relatively light applications may also prevent a buildup to potentially toxic levels, whatever those may be. I'll try to dig deeper into the blueberry nutrition literature next week and report back anything noteworthy.

    I'm getting a second inflorescence on the M. glabra! Although the first one is taking a long time to mature. As for nitrates, I do flush the pots every so often, so that may help prevent buildup.

    A quick update:

    N. chaniana x veitchii, one of my favorites:


    N. maxima x mira. I'm not that impressed, but hope it will look better as it gets older:


    N. vogelii:


    N. maxima x aristolochioides, one of my strongest growers:

    Does anyone else on here grow Oeceoclades spp? This is O. spathulifera in a growth spurt:


    O. peyrotii. I'm not sure what the growth to the right is, perhaps an inflorescence..


    Neostylis Lou Sneary 'Bluebird,' a tough, fragrant windowsill orchid that blooms twice a year for me:


    Schoenorchis fragrans:


    Lepanthopsis astrophora:


    Dracula lotax:

    DUDE! The N. vogelii and max x aristo in the first post are amazing!! Holy crap!! Blows my mind--it's like they're made of shiny perfection.

    Thanks, Kevin! They both make a lot of nectar. It can create a sticky mess when it starts dripping onto the plants below!

    Omg its striped peristome madness with the chaniana x veitchii & vogelii! I have a weakness for that sort of thing & YOUR chaniana x veitchii is also one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Avoiding work means... time for a photo thread update!

    Peeking in at a mess of windowsill Nepenthes:


    N. maxima x aristolochioides:


    N. glandulifera:


    Idem:


    N. glandulifera x burbidgeae. I cannot get enough of this one. Fuzzier than N. glandulifera and obscenely dripping with nectar:
