This started blooming today. The bloom is so small and was facing the moss so I almost didn't see it. Thats a tooth pick holding it up.
Been worried about it yellowing a little so I've moved it around the house a little. No vivarium.
These little bloomers are going to make me buy a macro lens yet!

Anyone grow one of these on a ceramic log to keep it moist?

This little species likes humid and warm environment. I would find a way to keep the humidity high for its longevity. If it's too dry it's not going to make it after a while.

That one is a keeper; very good color! Congratulations. I don't think I could keep one alive outside a vivarium-like environment.

Thanks Peter and Walton.

I put it in with my Ludisia discolor. Its growing in an antique battery jar, so its like a vivarium.

Should I mount the appendiculata and place in there, or just leave it in the pot so it stays moist better?

Cylon5 - no right or wrong answer. I would leave it in the pot for now. I wouldn't mount it unless you feel the media stay wet for a long time. This species does prefer moist than becoming completely dry off. But too wet for a long time will not be good to its roots. Only you can determine through observation to see what works best for you.
