There are a total of 25 growths. Five are spiking, 10 are hanging outside of the pot. 3 have last years dead spikes. Thanks for the pot offer, but I do have a bonsai pot or two around the house. I'm just short on ambition Its still in the original potting mix that I got the plant in from Ed M about 3 years ago. Last year mine seemed to bloom a long time too, and a couple of the spikes even branched.Wow! That's cool! (you know it's my favorite!) Sometimes it is more fun to play(and leave it be) than mess with what appears to be a good thing (repotting).
How many growths is it?
If you end up needing an empty bonsai pot I have one I'd be happy to send you. I can measure but I think it is about 8" x 10-12" x 4" deep and rectangular.
I think mine bloomed for too long last year (April - February) and is now taking a break, though it has three growths that look ready to spike. Time will tell. I'll be curious to know how long yours blooms, Rick. You seem to have a knack for this one too.
For some reason I didn't right this one down (or cant find it) in my record book, but I picked up several plants from you in 03, and 04 (the year of our Mid America show) when I think I bought it from you. But the time does move quickly!!It's been three years already Rick? My, my that thing has grown big quickly.
All five spikes are in bloom/bud now too, and a couple have branched. One day I counted 8 open flowers.ah, you already had posted pictures! I never looked at past posts, just updated the one I had. nice plant! flowers are pretty decent size as well.
you said you hadn't been able to find any pollen that wasn't related to 'oaxaca'; maybe there isn't any and they all came from the same plant
