Default Stanhopia Oculata Question

Thanks for the idea I was looking into galvanized mesh but I think the
holes would be too small. Chicken wire I can get just about anywhere here.

My experience,yet not that big, brings me to the conclusion it's not that
hard to keep some of them alive. In a basket I've found they need to be
watered more than plants in pot. I use chikkenwire for the baskets. Easy

to
find and easy to work with, I can use them again and if I want to

sterilize
them I just boil them in water.
Cheers
Peter

Shell, looking at the photo, if it is a 4" pot, I would say at least

twice
that size.
You do know that the flower spikes come out the bottom so you have to
put it in a basket. There are wooden slatted teak baskets in differant
sizes.
You could use a plastice net basket until it gets bigger I guess.
My plant was probably two may three times as big, got it in '96 &

first
blooms were
in 2001.

I have just gotten a Stanhopia oculata on eBay. I have been doing

some
reearch on the web but I can't find anything on how old a plant has

to
be
to
flower. Is it like most and needs to be several years old?

This is the page for the auction. Any opinions on the plant?
