    Here's a pic of jamesoniana Amuri in flower on my SE facing bathroom windowsill

    My Colombia tepui clone isn't far behind!
    Looks line it will have a smaller flower but time will tell.

    That's beautiful! Are you just growing them in LFS?

    Thank you very much. The Colombia clone is in pure nz lfs with a wick of sphag out the bottom of its container, that sits on an empty net put, in a tray of water




    The amuri come is in a mix of peat and coarse quartz sand

    I can't take credit for the wick idea, If I remember right it was a member on tf that came up with that idea. Your more than welcome.

    That's impressive. Never heard of this species being able to grow on a windowsill and much less flowering. Congrats!

    Cheers, yeah I haven't heard anyone doing it before either, not in the northern hemisphere. I grow all my orchioides utrics, heli's, drosera, cephalotus in fact everything on windowsills. I abandoned terrarium growing 2 or the years ago and haven't looked back.

    That's my plan too, though I do use grow lights for most plants since I have pretty heavily shaded windows for the most part.
