    Unfortunately I am only getting about half as many spikes as I had last year, with, so far, no more spikes so I think this is it for this year. Not at all upset with what I ended up with!

    I have seen this in the wild lately ; never very large plants, flowering on single canes ; I have a theory that such plants are not long-lived in the wild, so never get a chance to be specimen size , but make up for it by having seeds which are relatively successful (I as compared to say cymbidiums which shed millions of seeds each year but hardly ever have any babies.
    If I haven't posted a pic in my Thai Tour pics, I'll try and remember to look one out and add it - if you are interested.
