    Av,
    Nice healthy-looking plants! While longifolia often likes wet feet, I didn't think alpina & it's other Orchidioides brethren did... Do you take extra care to keep the media from staying soggy or are they more tolerant than I've read? Many people grow these guys in net pots...
    All the best,
    Ron

    Ron,

    This could easily be a case of ignorance being bliss :P

    I treat them both alike. When the sphag starts looking a little rough.. I fill the jar completely with water, let sit for a half hour or so then drain completely.
    Niether "stand" in water, but get regular "baths".

    Drew, it's domestic sphag... nothing exotic

    Cheers'

    Av8tor, I want to do with a U. longifolia what you did with your plants, that's such a wonderful look! I have a bundle of LFS but it's not live, will it come to life on all sides like yours and not just the top when it's in a bowl like that or did you use all live moss to begin with? Experimenters want to know!

    I use all live moss to begin with. But both work.
