have: bc maikai mayumi

just divided it, have about 10 divisions (picture of divisions, whole thing yesterday, and in bloom a few years ago at link below).

Will trade for anything that fits these needs-

will grow and bloom outside in Florida zone 9 (so nothing that needs a cool winter or such)

or will grow inside in a windowsill (tables full, so something small, lol)

Specifically would like miniatures and/or fragrant, and/or a rhynchostylis (not white gig. alba).
Not crazy about catts, they don't do well for me.

This is my first time dividing a plant, so might not have done it right, which is why I took a picture of what I'm offering. If it looks wrong, teach me obi wan.

When I divide, I like to sprinkle the roots with cinnamon after soaking it in a hydrogen peroxide solution.

RE: have: bc maikai mayumi

how about a 3-5 bulb front division of either L. anceps "Boulder City" or Lc. Wriggleyi "Blue Lagoon".
Both are hardy outdoors in coastal california, down to 28 or so. Also have some specimen size Sarcochillus Fitzhart, S. hartmannii, Den. speciosum and Den. Delicatum "Dawn", but I would need something larger for these.

RE: have: bc maikai mayumi

I would love some Boulder City, for an equal size piece of mine?

Or, the Den speciosum in exchange for all my maikai divisions? I have 6 divisional pieces left, each piece with 3-6 bulb/leaves. You can have them all if that would make it "fair" .....?
