    Default Your question...

    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).

    I was only watering her twice a week at first (I've had her about 6 weeks). Not enough considering the medium dries pretty fast, so I've been watering her more over the past month. There is something in the sheath, but the sheath has been that size for about a month and is no longer green, but turning brown. The two previous psuedobulbs also had sheaths that dried but they were much smaller. She only gets direct morning sun for about 2 hours - I thought it might not be enough. Is there still hope? Should most catts be watered more during bud development?

    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 ....

    And Julie,
    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....

    Julie??? No she should be Scotty, with the piping and all... although I'm afraid she might not like that one...
