I got both species. They looked fine when they arrived, but died within a week of being planted. I think they may not have liked the low humidity in the house. I would love to try them again someday, but first I'd want to spend more time researching what conditions they require.

Last fall I donated aerial propagules (that looked like spaghetti strands)

Seemannia gymnostoma (aerial rhizomes)
Seemannia nematanthodes 'Evita' (aerial rhizomes)

I'm wondering if anyone succeeded in getting plants to grow and bloom from
them yet?

(underground) rhizomes of Achimenes, xAchimenantha, xGloximannia, and more)
