    I've just noticed this afternoon that my Ansellia africana var alba is producing a keiki right on top of one of its leafless pbs. I've not heard or seen this before. I had noticed that it was starting to grow leaves out of the top of this pb which looked strange, but today I noticed roots.

    This plant is in the sun all day, gets watered 4-5 times a week, is throughly pot bound, potted in a 6" clay orchid pot and fertilized with osmocoat (sp?).

    As promised here is a pic of the Epicatt. in bloom! It sprouted out a lot of new growths but only one bloom I think the low winter light levels are to blame...

    Edit: Btw. to me it looks like a cross between Bc. Maikai and some yellow epidendrum.. Any other guesses are appreciated

    That looks an awful lot like one of Epc. Don Hermann variations! (I LOVE the yellow!)

    It does! I like the shape of the plant too.

    It sure does look a lot like it! Thanks!

    It has a honey-like daytime fragrance, but not something that fills the room or anything - you have to stick your nose right up to it - and I do

    I like the plant to BD, itø's a very compact grower, and buts out alot of new growth all the time
