Tank Update, March 2009

Yes, it's been a while since I updated this blog, so here is the latest status report on the orchids in the tank:





Dendrobium aberrans. This little fellow is found growing in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. It naturally grows in moss and enjoys rather high humidity. Mine is directly under the lights in the tank where it gets 1800+ foot-candles and 90+ percent humidity. It stays moist, but not dripping wet. The blossoms last for a very long time (a few months.) There is no fragrance.

Geting ready to bloom are:

Aerangis citrata
Aerangis fastuosa
Angraecum didieri
and
Haraella oderata
