This was the bloom from four months or so ago.
Thanks, John. I thought these were hard to grow, but you are making it sound pretty easy.PHRAG said:Under flourescent lights. On the warm side of intermediate. In S/H but keeping it wet. I grow all my plants this way.
Sounds like they don't like to be awarded?Greenpaph said:That one is very nice, John!
I got an AM on one about 10 years ago. The plant died 3 years later.
Rory Jones got an FCC on one about 15 years ago and his died 3 years later. I was told that they don't like to multiply.
Hope you have good success with yours!
The lip certainly looks more like rosariana. But what is interesting also, is that yours has a pattern on the petals, and I don't see any of that on either of the flowers in orchidspecies.com. What about Jay's description: "...differs from A cyanea by having the multiple calli on the lip." Does yours?PHRAG said:I think this may actually be Acacallis rosariana. What do you all think?
What I mean is that it didn't really become a specimen plant (bulbs). It would send out a new growth each year. However, the oldest bulbs would die off. Eventually the whole plant died off. Not sure why.PHRAG said:What do you mean by multiply? Grow new bulbs?
