    Mine just sit in my tropical tank indoors all year round. They usually start to flower Dec through June. The D. aff. ordensis will flower for 6-8 months, the others 2-4 months. I do not vary the photoperiod on the tank lights so they must get their environmentmental cues from the ambient temperature changes and sunlight coming in from the windows. I do not heat the tank at night.

    Here's some more photos of the D. aff. ordensis flower (white) and D. paradoxa flowers (pink). I pluck off the petals and rub the anthers against the stigma. Removing the petals makes this easier and is less time consuming and demanding than plucking off the anthers. It also gives me more working time as the flowers between species open and close often at different times of the day. (colors may not have been corrected in all the photos)

    That's really cool. It's too bad you can't make some Seed-grown species, but I bet the hybrids will be plenty impressive.

    I'm working on it. Since I grew the one D. paradoxa I have from seed I should be able to get seed with most any other D. paradoxa even the overcloned Mt. Boomford. I just noticed a seedling in my colony of D. petiolaris but I don't know if it is a stray of some other species or one of by previous hybridizations.
