    Could never say how many plants there are in any one of these "bins".
    What happens is this: The plant is propogated by cuttings. each cutting is just pushed into the coconut husk and tied for support. that piece has to grow long enough to be able to sway in the wind or it will not flower. After a while and that piece gets too tall and starts to topple I cut and start the process over again, which makes the clump bigger and bigger with lots of blooms.

    Default Papilionanthe Amy

    Hi Angela:

    Thanks for the inspiration. Last Easter, I moved my Papilionanthe Amys away from the trees that had grown to provide too much shade. Within 2 months with early morning to 1:00 p.m. shade, everyone is blooming! This is a special plant.

    Next, I am going to try your wire bins idea. Do you put rocks in the bottom? I am going to try to find a way too keep the roots from going into the ground, so I can exhibit the plants in our February show. We are on a sunny, breezy hilltop in St. Croix.

    Hi Sonia.
    I am happy that I have inspired you to get busy with some teretes.
    No, I do not put rock in the bottom of my wire baskets. Mine are made of chicken wire (that's what we call it here), and I enclose the bottom so that the husks do not fall out. I then sit this on some concrete blocks, not on the bare ground.
    I do not get roots going into the ground. My bins are about 3 ft tall, and I attach my cuttings from half way up the sides. The roots will grow into the husks.
    Hope it works for you.
    Have fun. Good Luck
    Angela

    There are a few semi-teretes hybrids if you look around that has V coerulea blood in it. they come in all shades of color and the flower does resemble more like teretes leaf parents with big wide lips.
