    How are you guys doing? Mine has finally sprouted some leaves a few inches off of the main plug.

    Ooo.... can I join? Here's mine:





    And here's how I keep it:



    I'd say it's spread about 5 inches since I got it, but the leaves are nowhere near as big as the ones it came with.

    Just thought I would drop in for an update. I don't have pics...yet..but my plant is going to flower again. It was about the size of most of your plants after I gave the cuttings away; ratter, etc. It's now big again with 2 spikes from what I can see. One spike should be opening in a few weeks. I'll try to get Rob Co over here to take pics when it does.

    That is great news, Phil. I look forward to seeing the stalks as well. Will you have to pollinate them yourself or will the pollinators in the area do the job for you?

    xvart- I'll have to hand pollinate the flowers myself. They have a bit of a complex structure somewhat similar to that of a Paphiopedilum orchid. I've produced seed on this before and being that it is a cooler time of year I stand a better chance of getting good seed set. I'll take my standard 35mm photos of the developing stalk and buds and have these scanned after the blooms have opened and digital pics are taken.
