The cuttings root easily, I just poked a broken new branch in the soil and it rooted after 15 days...

Is it admireable from distance or only on close-up?

hmmm i think closeup. But it can only be decided after seeing an established plant growing in ground for at least few years.

For those in lahore, i can give cuttings. But for outsiders it will be difficult. I will let you know before purchasing from Chiltern and will buy a packet for you.

Zaib, Never sent cuttings to outside lahore or pakistan. These are soft wood cuttings, not sure how they will end up. You can share the packet of seeds of umar khan. There are enough seeds in the packet that easily many gardeners can divide. The seeds is the easiest to germinate!!!!!

I will try to root as many cuttings as I can... and will let you people know when they are ready ..in the Trade section...

@ Adnan: I think the Nitrogen content in the potting soil was a bit higher, so that is why there is more foliage and no blooms... now as the raining season is over in Karachi, I may spray it with the Orchid bloom booster solution which has higher Potassium concentration...
