I got one of these over a year ago from Morphman and it has done quite well. It actually produced 2 seed pods for me. One pod I sent off to a member and one pod all 7 seeds germinated in chopped sphagnum (December 2015). I accidentally broke a branch off the mother plant and figured what the heck and stuck it into a pot that had a seed sprouting. The branch rooted and the seedling grew. That is good news as all future flowerings (both the pups & the mother plant)dried up without producing a seed pod so cuttings are the easier way to go for propagation. I have not fertilized these plants till a week ago with very, very diluted 20-20-20 Some photos:
You can see the "trunk" base fattening up. This plant got lost in the mail.
Here you can see 2 flowers happening on the plant/pot on the right. The pot/plant on the left with that little dried woody twig is actually the broken branch plus a seedling.
Mine from morphman is also doing very well. I occasionally spray the roots with Orchid fertilizer diluted to 50 PPM in rain water. I had some flowers at first but none since then and no seeds. It's an attractive plant.
