I don't really need to be reminded that I am an orchid addict. It is all too plain. A few days ago I was at Napa Valley Orchids and bought an overflowing saucer of Mediocalcar decoratum. I don't have space for the plants I have and when I have to find indoor space in the fall I may be in trouble.
Mediocalcar decoratum grows in Papua and New Guinea in moist mountain forests. It is cold to cool growing and blooms in spring. The genus Mediocalcar (Medi) contains about 20 species from New Guinea.
It was growing happily in a fairly bright spot in an intermediate greenhouse. I got it home and found that this species is cold to cool growing. These do not do well in my greenhouse.
And just to make the problem worse, I made some divisions. I will find a place for then at the bottom of the greenhouse and try to get them growing. If they are ok after a month or two, I will try to sell them.
