    I have written this reply plenty of times.

    I Googled Western Ghats, India its beautiful country.
    Western Ghats is a mountain range that runs parallel to the western coast of the Indian peninsula, located entirely in India. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the eight "hottest hot-spots" of biological diversity in the world.
    After looking at several photos you can see why its listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Thanks guys.. :)

    Here's the parva slowly blooming: I have observed that Parva growth is really slow and the flower growth is even slower. It's been about 5 days since this is blooming. Other crypts' flowers open soon and fall sooner too.

    Hi Guys,

    How my DIY compost looks; the leaves are about 2 weeks old.

    34216586952_e5d60c8327_c.

    I usually add this compost + garden soil as the base substrate;

    33564737393_7edd6cf055_c.

    Then top it up with JBL manado/inert substrate and mist it really well and voila:

    33564439583_bf32eb78c6_c.

    Cheers,

    Karthik

    PS: I maintain the compost pit myself and all the dried leaves in the garden go in there fortnightly. It is humid always and the leaves decompose faster while buried inside the garden soil.
