I must confess that I am a little doubtful that my Selaginella plants that you can see in my photograph above are actually true Selaginella apoda. However, for more than three years I’ve seen exactly the same type of Selaginella on sale at various nurseries and chains of garden centres and all of the plants were labelled as Selaginella apoda – and so I may well be wrong and this maybe the correct name for this plant.
Dinema polybulbon is a miniature, epiphytic and lithophytic orchid species, which originates from Cuba, Mexico, and Nicaragua, where this orchid can be found growing on trees and rocks, in areas of humid forest.
Dinema polybulbon produces large, caramel and ivory coloured, fragrant flowers, which have a striking appearance and a rather elegant beauty.
I find that Dinema polybulbon is far easier to grow as a mounted specimen than as a pot grown plant.
