    x [alpina x endresii] and others; pictures and cultivation

    So, I've had this for a while now and could really never get it to do much. We talked about top watering, not top watering, cooler temps, warmer temps... I just could never get it to do more than one or 2 leaves and then those die off... Here is what I have going as of right now.

    I have it in maybe a slightly cooler part of the g/h (by the cephs) but in the heated greenhouse. So nights around 55-60ish and days around 80-85f. I no longer water through the top, at all. and it generally sits in water (same tray as some random VFTs and the U. alpina.) I bet you wish yours was doing so well!

    Alright, guess you're not gonna fall for it and say I suck. hehe

    same pot, the cutouts you recommended...



    A smaller pot I put a small plug into (pure lfs iirc)



    A little bit better than 3 dead leaves huh? heh I'm guessing they like the shallower LFS since it's fine in the small pot, and likes the side holes in the bigger pot but nothing out the top.

    So, it's willing to grow out the sides of the container but completely unwilling to send up anything due north?? What's up with that? It just doesn't like the company of all those volunteers (burmannii, etc).
    All the best,

    actually i have had the same issues with some of the Orchidioides section Utrics......they pic the spot in the column of soil that has the moisture content it likes and chooses to grow there which is why i cut holes in the sides of the pots when i use plastic.......some species like endresii like the drier top, some like alpins seem to like the wetter bottom....atleast in my care....

    It's actually kinda common for the group. I lost all the top growth on my U. alpina Pitter moon, but it started growing out the bottom instead. Quelchii and asplundii seem to be leaning more towards growing out the bottom of pots too, at least when they're stressed in my conditions.

    Sheridan - you still grow this hybrid right?
