    Cremastra appendiculata

    This Japanese orchid has a reputation for not repeat flowering. It's my sixth year to have it in flower so I'm not too sure why it has that reputation. It just gets on with it quietly under one of the benches.
    The information I first read on it said it was saprophytic so I've not re-potted or fed it.



    This is the best show it's put on so far.

    Interesting! Had not heard of this particular species before. Wonder how long it will be before you will have to do a repot to replenish whatever material it is feeding upon. Any esoteric media ingredients?

    Maybe it just really loves you. That's an amazing orchid, and if I had room I'd grow them too.

    More proof that there is no problem in the whole of human existence which can't be solved with an appropriate charge of high explosives.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
