    Default Ryncostylis Gigantea Spot

    The weather has been very strange and therefore I was not sure that this plant despite spiking would make it to full bloom. I have not been feeling very well so I did not have much time to take the picture that best represents the beauty of this flower. Here are 2 that I took without much effort. As usual for me there will be more to come hoping it will make it.Name:  rhyncocys 1-16 - 1.jpg

    Gorgeous! Weather is causing problems for me as well. Buds failed on three catts. Laelia's are not opening fully. Supposed to get some sunny weather over the next week but really nothing but clouds since mid October. Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Yes, the weather has been quite warm with random coldness. Which my plants have had some days were they were under 50 temps. I guess one or two days is ok, but not sure how my dens under these conditions will do?
