A really short spike this year...not a happy camper, the plant or me !
parishii X ?
nice subtle colour
phillipinense x parishii
that makes sense.
? alba philie?
Shame but still a stunning flower
Original tag doesn't say it is.. I've had it forever. It's not been a robust grower for me, and I think my lighting contributed to the shorter spike. Need to give it some TLC , I do not want to lose it . Photo of a good bloiming.
now that is pretty!!!..... just enough parishii.... how many flowers on a good blooming?
Not bad. Thanks for sharing.
4 at least..maybe 5 .
thats a more colourful flowering.
Maybe some more nitrogen and more light?
More nitrogen, possibly. Change in light for sure. The more colorful blooms was from an East facing window that received maybe a couple of hours of morning sun. A newly built carport took away that sun. The washed out, shorter spikes was under led shop lights. Lesson learned. Hubby exchanged fluorescent warm/ cool for these because he hated changing out the fluorescents.
