    This year's effort from my two randsiis. The plant labeled 1 I have had for 25 years while the one labeled 2 I have only had for about 10 years.

    What a long spike. For 25 years, that is all the clump? This species is really sloooooowwww. My gh will probably collapse first before mine will spike. Congrats and good growing.

    Thanks. They are not fragrant. They've bloomed before, this is the 2018 showing.

    I loooooove them both - plant 1 for the plant itself (and the amazing culture!) and the many flowers; plant 2 for the form and size of the flowers!

    Such an impressive job! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    I acquired a nice young plant last year...and it seems in good growth, albeit still a very juvenile delinquent.... Hmmm, I wonder how many years I have to wait before it turns into BS?!

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    Do you have magic fertilizer? Air?

    BTW, how is the C. lichiangense doing? I'm actually on the edge of the seat...

    The plant 1 was bought as a seedling that was 2 inches across. It took about 5 years to bloom.

    I use Michigan State-type fertilizer at 125-150 ppm weekly.

    The Cyp. lichiangense is growing well with 2 growths. They are about 1.5 inches tall now, but I can't yet see if either growth will bloom.

    Thanks. I'd love to see the plant regardless if it has blooms or not.

    Fantastic JP! Hands down, you are the randsii stud!
    Hey if you ever divide one of them think of me. I would love to have a multi growth plant and you would get a fair price.

    Is that total ppm or N ppm? Assuming for RO?
    Thanks

    Using RO it's total ppm. That, I assume, is all due to the fertilizer.
