Here is a picture of my trellis where I keep some of my platyceriums. There are others which are not in view.

Thank you so much for identifying the various platyeriums, you are spot on identifying them all correctly.

I still have p.grande, really huge growing on the trunk of my mango tree, along with 3 other huge p.holttumi on another mango tree.

My p.veitchii is growing extremely slowly.

I have given up on p.ridleyii and p.superbum. I lost so much money purchasing them and all died on me.

My p.wandae is slowly but surely growing from a tiny specimen bought at the last Orchid Convention at Marina Sands last year.

Hi Kelvin,
Maybe you try to grow the P. ridleyii under roof. This can avoid too much water during raining season. I have 2 plant and they grow very big now.

I see you are a Platy collector as well.
When your veitchii pups, maybe we can trade. I have 12-13 Platy species. Ridleyi
I have to agree, it's not the easiest Platy to grow, neither is it a hard.
I have a rudely that I keep sheltered from the rain and it can survive 3 weeks without watering. The smaller ones I'll keep them
Outside. Superbum is also not difficult, I think it's due to our different growing conditions that some don't do well for us.
Do you have elephantotis? It's a beautiful Platy. Don't mind if I post mine:)

Hi Nep,

thanks for your reply. I tried many times with p.ridleyii and all failed that I have given them up. i even had them under the roof but they died.

The p,vietchii is such a slow grower and does not grow well in our wet weather. I have them for 2 years already and they still look like infants. Almost died.

p.superbum died too. Think too much water which they don't like.

Your p.elephantotis is very healthy. Mine is doing well but pup only once. The parent plant died so hoping the sole surviving pup grows well.

Happy Easter Fiery Dragon,

your platy is so healthy. Hope to see more of your other collection too.

By the way, how do you post your photos directly onto this site? I can only show my collection via Post Bucket site.

Have you tried cultivating platys from spores? If you have, could you share how to do it please.

Kelvin

SO sorry for not replying earlier.I have been very busy with other projects and have not enough time to go into GCS.
As you guys might notice that most of my Platys are grown under a tinted acrylic canopy which filters out the hot sun and prevent heavy downpours that drown the plants.I water them every other day.
