    Default Trichoglottis geminata

    Back with my plants after a couple weeks on the frozen tundra for the holidays.
    Apologies for the lousy photography but it provides some perspective of scale I guess. Blowing in the wind made it tough for the phone to focus on the close-up of the flower.
    So, along with Encyclia's, Trichoglottis have become my new passion growing here.
    This plant has added at least a foot of new growth as well as 4 keiki's in the past year.
    The flowers grow right off the main stem mostly as pairs with an occasional single. Although small, the sweet-spicy fragrance absolutely knocks your socks off! Love it!

    Very nice Leigh! Does yours get a lot of sun?
    Well.......let's call it bright light vs sun Sheryl.
    It's in shade house under 60% shade cloth (no other shade) with all of my vandaceous plants and Catts. Also under automatic misters that run for 10 minutes 2X/day. First light in morning then 8 hours later so this time of year that translates to 7:30 AM and 3:30 PM. (sunset here currently being about 6:00 PM)
    When I built the shadehouse I asked a well known South Florida orchid breeder/grower his recommendation on the shadecloth and he suggested 60% for dends, catts and vanda's and 80% for most everything else so I went with 60% on one end and 80% on the other end. Interestingly, this was a slightly more dense shading than he uses at his establishment in Homestead and his thinking on that was that even though we are only maybe 120 miles further south, the light in the Keys is significantly brighter due to the reflection off the surrounding water.

    Thank you Zainal.
    Yes, the flowers are long lasting. This plant will likely be in bloom for a solid 2 months and maybe longer if good conditions hold.
