So, with the p. orchidioides doing so well on the orchid bark mix, I decided to see how many I could make via stolons. I also took the last three 'gemmae' I had on other mixes (that hadn't died yet) and placed them in the mix to see how they react...

Well, the gammae/tubers/bulbs I placed did not survive...
But....

We have babies!

This plant sends out stolons up to about 3inches away. The last inch or so, they send out roots and if they find a spot they like, they start to develop roots. Then, the atolon shrivels and dries out starting at the mother plant. Really a cool/interesting/weird plant!

I've also noticed some changes in theother plant, looks like she's going dormant? I'm hoping at some point I may get a flower... We'll see...

yes the mother plant begins its dormancy.
