    Well I have just been told by the grower it is a "Type A Macro Specimen" and will look like this

    Macro potted up yesterday....

    With my watering regime, I went with some Schultz Orchid mix I had laying around, a dab of LFS, a wee bit Seachem Flourite and top dressed with some red Sphag for good looks and microenviroment.
    Placed it on my T8 rack... was afraid my T5 rack would have been a bit much more than it was use to with the minimal distance to fixture.
    Temps should never exceed 72F where it is at and while no "fog", it is still relatively humid.

    Figure it will need some time to acclimate, but hope it likes the new place

    Very nice butch, I know neps aren't your specialty, but you seem to be doing pretty darn good.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    The coloration on these things is mesmerizing!
    I think you will find yourself hooked on Neps in time...
    But then if you do... where does one go from here?
    Seems you are starting at the top to begin with!
    Perhaps a Hamata x Villosa or Eddy type perhaps?

    (As always, nice plants Butch!)
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Butch I about fainted when I read it was a gift. Way to go my friend. You are truly*deserving. I will love to see it get bigger. You will do great with it. Just need to expand your growing area in the future for neps. Wow is all I can say. It is stunning.

    good work man! Why did you chose seachem fluorite? is this to help mimic ultramafics? have you used it before?
