    I remember them blooming at peter's place and BobZ's place one April.
    Don't think they can deal will full on freeze. Maybe garage or unheated area inside that doesn't freeze

    so im about to relocate my campbelliana to a larger slab--a driftwood piece even. might put a few miniature orchids on the mount as well but there's a problem--how to water?

    we've got quite a few people growing it here, so i'd like to hear how you guys are currently keeping your campbelliana from desiccation. mine is currently exposed to direct mist from a ultrasonic fogger every other hour.

    Mine is in relatively high humidity, so that helps keep it moist. Also, the moss is on top of coarse peat, which helps retain water.

    Following the recommendations of the original owner**, the campby slab (sheet moss over cork bark) sits in water (allowed to periodically dry out) and sprayed by hand when I'm in the neighborhood (usually daily but can stretch to 2-3 days). I try to spray the jamesoniana on treefern once daily (but it can also get stretched).

    I am dreaming about getting everything into a greenhouse where auto-foggers/misters/sprinklers can eliminate the current labor and closely mimic nature.

    ** I originally thought the lower areas were far too wet and any stolons that wandered down there would rot. My theories appear to be wrong as the lower sections have a strong colony where it is constantly wet. However, attempts to grow rolons on constantly wet dead LFS have typically failed.
    All the best,

    ummmm mine dries out around the edges pretty regularily.....
    It is in an area of realitively high airflow, so I try to water it at least every couple days....

    I was keeping it much moister and it was forever in a slow decline. The drier conditions (at least for me) have made a dramatic improvement. The recovery began almost overnight..... (its in the exact same moss as well, I just moved the whole clump from point A to point B)

    I think now it has a "gradiant" of moisture levels it can choose from.... maybe this gradient is the key, I dunno
