    U. reniformis 'Big Sister' ...yep, in flower!

    Wow, what an amazing spring this has ended up being! First the x[alpina x endresii], then the U. longifolia, and now this! ...simply amazing This is in the other (much cooler) greenhouse BTW.

    Wow! Congratulations!

    U. reniformis has my favorite CP flower (& the new U. cornigera - aka reniformis is the best!). While I don't think it was pot-bound yet, I stuck my largest in the back basement room for a cold, dry winter dormancy (Euro-style). I just recently started to water again and now have ~6 leaves coming up at once - - - but no flowers - at least not yet ((still hoping tho)).

    From the looks, you didn't even let yours get really dry?
    All the best,

    I would not say really dry... But not constantly wet either. I actually don't keep this that wet normally even during the summer. For the winter I had this with my dormant stuff so it saw days in the 50s-60s and nights probably just above freezing. I actually noticed it because I thought it looked like it was time to give it some water LOL. I have a smaller part of it established for Pyro, it had lost of of its leaves but it seems the currently coming spring season has even signaled that pot to resume growth as it has a couple of leaves poking now.

    I agree. I grow mine in an open mix of peat, sand, and perlite in an unheated greenhouse where the winter temps get near freezing. The plant loses all of its leaves in late fall and they re-emerge in spring. I have noticed the larger the pot, the larger the leaves. My plants flower every summer with the flowers lasting about 3 months.

    Amazing bobz! Thanks for the info and pictures I can't wait to see the flowers, amazing they last 3 months! Truly orchid like. Is it normal for the bloom to have a loop at the top kinda like capensis and the flowers look like they're starting to open already while on the down side of the loop?

    Ratter, I noticed a second bloom in the pot today
