I got my Sans and Little Prince banana yesterday. They look really good! I'm waiting on my Reverse Variegated Spider, which should be here tomorrow, and I will post pics then.
I grow orchids as well, tarev. You are right---they are all different. Some I can't grow to save my life, and I have good luck with others, mainly cattleya hybrid types. They bloom for me every year as well. (Most of the time). And yes, the watering of orchids is practically a science! I always rotted phals, so gave up on them. And I tend to underwater! Yet, each one eventually died. Same happened to paphs. I'd have them for months or even a couple of years, then it would decline and die. I have a Psychopsis papilio I've had many years. It bloomed quite a few times, but no blooms from it in the last several years. Yes, orchids are temperamental plants. I grow ferns successfully here in the desert, inside, believe it or not. Asparagus and Boston. The fancy ones don't make it though. As long as they're watered often enough, I've found they do very well, which really surprised me.
