Hi all, one of the other spikes of the above plant has opened and the older one died out, so there is one more to go, and Zainal thanks for the comments, yes the Araceae are also flowering, think I will post a picture of two I have where the leaves are so big and beautiful.
Wow what a beautiful tall plant.
Cattan thanks for your imput, and yes the first spike did die off and another has flowers with the third waiting until that has finished flowering but I am glad to have the plant anyway, just waiting until it is done flowering to cut it back and get another plant and make this one a little shorter ( my height 5.4 lol) I have to bend the thing to look at it properly
hello folks, well to my surprise this orchid is sending another flower spike just as I was about to cut it back and repot because it is getting too tall so now I have to wait for another month or so, wonder why it sends out the flower spikes so far apart
Maggs in my experience with vandaceaus orchids cutting it back will set back the blooms. Although the top is healthy it needs a root system to thrive. You may want to try air layering it before you cut it of
We are in the month of August and this plant has been putting out three flower spikes almost every other month or so the last time I had said that it was sending out another spike and that was in June well it is out followed by another two spikes one is nearly ready to open and the other one is just about three inches long, I was a bit amazed cause I really want to cut it and get another plant but I guess Glenn I will have to wait and see how many more spikes I will get before I can do so, it is out in the open in hot sun and rain and wind, seems to love those conditions but I wanted to repot it as the roots are going into the earth around it as I moved it from my porch that is concrete as they were painting the porch area, so that makes about six or spikes for the year already but I wish all would come out at the same time that would make for a real beauty I think, so I am posting two pics of it, if you look closely near the new spike you will see the smaller spike coming out, enjoy
well folks we are at the end of September and there is another surprise again, seems that this plant loves where it is in the middle of the back yard in full sun and I do mean full sun (from 7am until about 5pm every day) I said before I wanted to cut it and put another plant to grow but low and behold there is yet another flower spike on the go, I guess that I will have to put that on hold again, it is coming out just around the fifth leaf down from the top, so my question is how long does this plant really flower? it seems that it has been like this since last year, I am happy about the flowers though but concerned about the height it is going to (over seven foot now)
It looks like Ren. Brookie Chandler, possibly a hybrid of that?
Well what do you know, this orchid has been flowering since the beginning of last year and when I thought I would get a chance to cut it back there is another flower spike following three that have finally dried up, the plant has grown to about eight feet tall in a concrete pot I have had to stake it (with many pieces of wood) to keep it up because the high winds here have blown it over on about three occasions, I have it tied to a post with a long wire to keep it steady also, all I can do is look, smile and marvel at what nature can do along with the owner of the plant (God) and I say that I really have nothing to do with how well it grows eventually, it is in full sun from about seven in the morning until about five in the afternoon, and as the days will get hotter and drier when next month comes this plant flourishes, WOW
