Hi, these plants lay dormant in a greenhouse for up to 5 years. I planted them in soil assuming they were cacti, but then 2 years later my mum surmised they could be orchids so i transplanted them into bark. 3 weeks later they have all flowered! They have white tuberous roots. Anyone have a clue about what they are?
