    Beautiful plants - congrats!

    What diameter is that pot (& how tall)?
    All the best,

    Excellent plants. Have you ever had any "Slime mold" or whatever it is on your Sphagnum? Whenever I use dead sphagnum, it becomes slimy.

    MIcrowave it for 5 minutes without adding water (MY METHOD) and then add your distilled water and pot up. It shouldnt be too hot after you add water but check carefully. Never get mold or moss or anything on my sterilized media.. ON my non sterilized media i always get moss or slime

    Thanks guys for the nice comments.
    I don't use milled sphagnum moss with these, just good quality dried sphagnum.
    I also add some chunky perlite to the mix. I owe all of my success with this plant to Av8tor1. He told me to grow it in a very deep pot, in just long fiber sphagnum moss.
    The first year or two I grew it in a pot that was 6" wide by 8" deep. It did great, but when I wanted to repot it in fresh sphagnum I noticed that the roots had went 8" to the bottom of the pot and also round and round a few times. I decided to search for an even deeper pot. Now I have them growing in an 8" wide by 16" deep pot sitting in about an inch of water. They love it. These plants really do have some serious roots!
    They started to flower once last year, but aborted for some reason? Maybe this year will be different. I really don't have any problems with slimy sphagnum, maybe because the sphagnum stays good and damp but not totally waterlogged all the time?

    Thanks again Av8tor1 !!!!!

    Beautiful plant, Jeff! I too have been following Butch and Warren's advice and my plants are also doing very well . . .
