It has been my experience over the years that plants I have imported, once they have been  established again, (usually six to twelve months) have grown and flowered well and still  continue to do so. On receiving another clone of the same species from the same area I  have had considerable difficulty in growing that plant and after doing everything possible  have lost it.  This problem is not confined to species only but could be instrumental in creating the  impression that such and such a plant is hard to grow and should not be imported again.  Once it is known that this is seldom so, this creates an even greater challenge to orchid  species growers.  Growing Oncidium species in Brisbane Environmental Conditions for Vandaceous Orchids Adelopetalum bracteatum Aerangis modesta Ancistrochilus rothschildianus Ascocentrum christensonianum Bulbophyllum annandalei   Bulbophyllum dissitiflorum Bulbophyllum hamelinii  Bulbophyllum lasiochilum Bulbophyllum lobbii Bulbophyllum schillerianum Cattleya loddigesii Cattleya skinneri Coelia triptera Cymbidium erythraeum More Articles
