    Nice. Last winter I bought a large plant of Masd Veitchiana. I noticed about a week ago that it had a spike growing. Then at the end of the week we had 3 days of 90 degree weather. I'll need to check if that spike survived. After all these are really cold growers not intermediate growers.

    Bob, most of the year where you live should be great for Masdies!

    Eric, Everyone always told me I couldn't grow them so don't bother. I listened for years. Then a few years ago I won one at a raffle. It did great. Now I have quite a few and am always looking for quality plants. Even have about a dozen seedlings growing of one cross that has promise. And, I checked and the Veitchiana spike did not blast. I can go out into the greenhouse any time of year and find at least one or two in spike.
