    Default Meet Otaara Jane Fumiye 'Hawaii'

    My first earned bloom on this one. I've had her about a year with two non-producing sheaths. It was amazing to watch the sheath mature and the bud hatch out.

    Wow Tami. That's just marvelous. The purple veins over the pink and then the strong red lip finishing it up. Nice.

    Thanks. The lip color grew darker to almost a burgundy over a few days. Only one bloom but I'm happy.

    Congrats!

    My mom has one of these that's been in sheath for months... Now I can tell her she's not the only one!

    Great job!

    This plant is lovely. I have one as well. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in how thin and flimsy the flowers are, but the SMELL is HEAVENLY!

    Thanks, I haven't noticed a fragrance on this one, but if I remember right your blooms are about 4" across? This one is only about 3" and the plant is young. The sheath on the bifoliate pbulb never bloomed, but the next single leaf pbulb produced the bloom. The bloom is thin and easily damaged. I won'd be so heavy handed with the next one!
