Re: Orchid question

I'm certainly no orchid specialist, Cathy, but I do know one, so I forwarded
your question to Bill Smiles.  Here is his reply:

Hi -   From China and Southeast Asia  -  Ludisia discolor - grown mostly for
its jewel like foliage -  along river banks in mossy areas - and yes, it could
have thrown a new growth from its rhizome which is creeping by nature....keep
it moist all year, well lit window sill or warm greenhouse - not too much
humidity......See you all Wednesday!!  Bill

This guy grows literally hundreds of different species of orchids, but
specializes in Draculas.  And he's a real sweetie into the bargain.  Always
glad to
share his knowledge and very generous in other ways, too.  He really belongs
in this group, but says he doesn't have time.  Oh well, who does?
