    Default Iwan Apple Blossom in the sun

    I know this has been around on the board but shining in the sun today... and I wanted to post a picture. I don't know which clone this is.... 'Golden Elf' or 'Little Elf' and since it isn't white, I do know it isn't 'Fantastic'. I do know that it is bright and just so yellow!

    Please post yours, Ischel. You should be proud of your good work and this isn't a contest....never has and never will be! This is a group effort to enjoy, learn and educate. So get out the camera and let us see just how nice yours looks!

    very well bloomed. I discovered a spike on mine this week. what I find interesting is how different your growths look from mine. How tall are your growths?

    Ron, from bottom of the pbulb to the tip of the leave they average about 10" and the spikes are a bit longer.

    Steve, I've had this plant for about 3 ~ 4 yrs, so this is my 3rd go on the flowers for me. I got it in spike way back when. This year it didn't spike as well as last year... I recall having 5 or 6 spikes last year.....but alot of my catts have had their problems this season as have some of my phals

    If had one with that many blooms I don't think I would call it a problem. Be happy.
