On another note, while I walked around today, I found myself wondering if I should water something. I decided that since it rains/pours every day in Central America where Peristeria elata live, giving mine more water would be just the thing. It seems best to try grow plants that come from areas with similar weather patterns to where one lives. Remember the airlines brought them from somewhere. Having lived in Central America, I remember the pouring rains almost every day in the summer. We look at books and charts for climate information but nothing teaches us more than being in a place and experiencing the weather for ourselves.
