Wow, you are adventurious! These are notoriously difficult to maintain and yours look quite healthy! Then again, you have a wonderful way with orchids too, and they are another challenge. I am not secure enough to attempt either - still killing the 'easy' ones, lol!

Marguerite- There may be a botanical reason for them splitting that I am unaware of. I just liked how they looked :)
Well, Grammazoo. These are brand new...that could be why they look so good. After reading your comment, I'm feeling a little added pressure to keep it healthy though :) I'll do my best...we'll see how it goes.
