they grew a noticeable bit in these couple of weeks...roots are even sprouting out from the nodes.

the plants and planting media were given to me by a local grower/seller, also got good advice from them...
- keeping the environment above soil humid but the soil lightly moist to touch
- use demineralized water to prevent mineral buildup on surface which will mask the "golden lines"

so far, the plants seems thriving and happy :)/>

Jin Xian Lian 金线莲 AKA Anoectochilus formosanus and Anoectochilus Roxiburghii where you get these I wish to have some of them in my balcony

AS FOR 铁皮石斛, dendrobium candidium Is also know as the supreme cultiva in the herbal collection in chinese medicine as is good for the liver, stomach and eye however, it need a distinct dry spell to initiate bloom.

to select the best dendrobium candidium, the shorter internode distance and fatter stem and rhizome are the best!.

there the other dendrodium such as dend. thrsiflorum, dend. parishii, dend. densiflorum that can be used in the chinese medicine however the dend candidium are the best as the skin of the stem has a iron green sheen.

They are sold in baskets of agak agak 150 stalks for 350RMB/70SGD, heres some pics what they look like. The whole layer of it just shimmers in the sun, so mesmerizing...the pic i have dont do them justice!

Hello

Have been quite unlucky as some of the JO which I bought had already passed on. I am ok to manage Ludisia Discolour but for all these unique JOs...very difficult to manage...die off after 1 or 2 months after getting them...The root causes of their death is unknown.

Would want to try on again if given a chance. Thanks You

these JOs are apparently very leceh to take care...cannot overwater, too strong light...i keep mine indoors and have a dehumidifier going 24/7 so all containers have to be covered, with a sheet of glass or saran wrap with holes. only problem is there is condensation on the walls of the container that obscures view.

what kind of media do you plant JOs in?

I grow them in spaghmum moss but some still passed on - seemed very difficult to take care especially those unique ones

As for Ludisia, I grow them in those soft soil that looks like compost and it retains water and so far all the Ludisia that I have are doing well
