This is a discussion on Otaara Jane Fumiye 'Hawaii' within the Cattleyas, Vandas, Dendrobiums IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Thanks, ya'll. I though that might be the case. We'll see next year! Your photo ...
Thanks, ya'll. I though that might be the case. We'll see next year! Your photo is gorgeous, Clint! Thanks for the future look!
Jane Fumiye is a free-flowerer...the spike develops as soon as the sheath has reached its mature size.
Are you keeping it moist enough during bud development? Also, you may want to shade it a bit more. If there is something in the sheath, then flowers are about 6 weeks away (that' s about how long it took for mine).
Definitely water during bud development. That's when the plant needs it most. Be less concerned about overwatering, because the plant requires a lot of moisture to grow and support those new blooms and all the super-structure that holds them up.
Scotty, more water pressure to the flower spike!
Don't lessen water during flowering either - it will make for longer blooms!
Very beautiful bloom, Clint!
BTW, I thought your motto was "sleeping with the butterflies". What's the deal with trying to get honey out of the killer bees? Heheheeeee ....
Are you trying to turn the RVO forum into the Enterprise? And who is playing Scotty part? And what part are you playing? Doc McCoy? Hehhheeee....
Damn it, Doc Spock - I'm a piper, not a surgeon!
I'll be anyone as long as it's not the unknown red-uniformed security ensign that gets killed as soon as the team hits the surface of an unknown planet.
