    Default Masdie Hampshire Prolific Question

    I bought a Masdie Hampshire Prolific in the beginning of Feb. It was in low spike and has since grown many more. It's third flower opened today and I noticed that the first bloom spike (flower still intact) has branched and is getting a second bloom on it. I know very little about Masdies. Is this a sequential bloomer? Is this normal? If yes to both of those it may be my new favorite.

    Sequential blooming Masd. exist but they are not the norm. If you have one, lucky you!!!

    Yes, please do. From the name 'Prolific' I assume it is a sequential blooming orchid.

    Cheers,

    If you look close you can see the branched spike. And notice she is just getting started. Quickly becoming a favorite.

    I just purchased one and has many blooming spikes but no doubles. You're lucky! Does anyone know anything about the culture (C, I, W)? I checked the Gerritsen/Parsons book and it wasn't even listed. Great little guy.
