    Default Kirchara Tropical Jewel 'Hihimanu'

    Got this one two years ago. It has quadrupled in size for me since then. First time blooming. One spike with 6 flowers and two more spikes coming along. Strangest thing with these plants bloom is that they bloom from the tiny new growths. Just as the leaves pop open from the newest p-bulbs, you can see the tiny buds inside. No sheath...

    Thanks! I think the strange blooming habit is due to the Epi. stamfordianum pollen parent.
