    I've been watching this spike slowly form over more than....... 12 MONTHS!

    Nicely grown plant!

    All the species in this genus will take a long time to develop the spikes.

    What is the difference between Amesiella monticola and Amesiella philippinensis?

    I've seen conflicting descriptions involving plant size and yellow in the lip.

    FYI, Eric. In general, the spike takes about 3 months to develop.

    Nice job. Interesting that it took a year for the spike. I wasn't able to grow this species.

    I would love to know the answer to this as well. I have read about them and it is not clear what the difference is. I have had both and they looked much the same. unless one of them was mislabeled.

    Mine took about two to three months to develop and open. Nicely scented like Gardenia! :)
    Mine bloomed in the winter.
