Hi everyone,
My besseae is in bud. How longue till the flower will show itself?
Do new growths on phragmipedium grow sooo slow?
Thanks

There's a certain jinx involved in talking about a bud before it opens. Be careful! ;>)

mine bloomed a month after the spike first grew last September. And it bloomed sequentially till December.

Besides, my location is in the subtropical, hence the summer temp is quite high (can easily be 33c+ during daytime even in Sept to early Oct), if you grow yours in cooler temp, I guess the growth rate will be different
