However, once it got ahead of the various mosses, I figured I'd let it go for a while & see how it does -- then this very cool stalk appeared.
    All the best,

    well, you're growing it way better than mine. mine is currently brown and crispy.... and i wouldnt discredit you so much on not utilizing LFS. many europeans do not use LFS in their soil mixes, so you cant be too off.

    @Rl and Ampy: I ain't got no sphagnum in my SA dew mediums! *Snaps fingers* All the plants in LFS and sand kicked the bucket. It was probably due to the tray collapse at the time and the fact that peat holds water better than sphagnum (long term). They do fine, and I believe any inadequacy in their appearance is due to my lower temps and humidity plus the distance from the lights.

    And that plant looks wonderful. Love the hairy scapes. Need to get this species.

    Warren, are those all hamiltonii? I know I see one tuberous, but what are the last few?
