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...

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!
