Photo 10 minutes ago

It's the funkiest neo flower. I don't know if the flower will open more because it's already fragrant. I could be wrong though. This spike only has 3 flowers. Hopefully it'll be better next time round.



Edit - i just realized this is in the discussion section...i meant to put this is the non slipper orchid photo section.

More mutations for you right here Eric

taken just now and even more funkier but i still think it has a bit more opening to do

Flower 1

Flower 2


Flower 2 next to the awesome tenkei Dr. Lehr from New World hooked me up with. The size of the shunkyden flower is about double.

That's what the water from Chernobyl will do for you; bigger but "different"! [P.S. and Harrisburg too, don't think we forgot about you PA.]

Repotted it today in the traditional japanese method. Heres what it looks like:



It went into s/h as soon as I got it from Cal orchids in May.

Has this particular plant bloomed for you before? 1st time bloom?
I like it when it's different - it's got character!

Marco, what was the root growth like when you repotted it into the s/h? Do you think those dead roots died because they were the older ones and couldn't adapt to the s/h culture?

I'm going to repot my Sekai tonight cause it is the only one that doesn't seem to have an air pocket in the bottom and it is drying out much more slowly than all my other ones that do, and the lowest leaf turned yellow. Not risking it!
