I bought a Mediocalcar decoratum two years ago with the idea of dividing half of it for sale. I took a few small pieces off the edge, but waited to get a flower picture before doing a full division on it. It has not bloomed in my greenhouse and I am tired of waiting for it.
The genus Mediocalcar (Medi) contains about 20 species from New Guinea.
Mediocalcar decoratum grows in Papua and New Guinea in moist mountain forests. It is cold to cool growing and blooms in spring.
The divisions are now in sphagnum over peanuts in 2 1/2-inch plastic pots. They will get a couple of months to start growing before selling starts in April. This species will join the plants being sold off to reduce my collection size. My goal for fall of 2013 is to have room in my Napa greenhouse for the whole collection.
