    Default Pecteilis susannae

    Has anyone on this forum managed to bloom Pecteilis susannae successfully without artificial fire/smoke treatment? I have tried growing it in various regimes, full sun, shade, loads of fertiliser, dormant treatment but no flowers. I am told that it can re-bloom without the fire treatment. It attempted to spike once, but the spike was attacked by insects. I have had this plant for 4 years. Originally 2 tubers, it has doubled in number every year and now I have 8 (6 in the pot shown below, 2 in another pot). Pot is 40cm across for size reference.



    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    That's a very interesting orchid. I looked up photos and it resembles some of the native US orchids - Habenaria comes to mind.

    Yes. It used to be known as Habenaria susannae before being separated into Pecteilis with a few other species such as P. sagarikii. Just to update the largest growth in the centre of the pot shown above is about to spike. I will post pics when it opens..

    Hi paphioboy I think the tallest plant maybe another 2 months time will produce the spike, as far as I'm concern I never used any fire/smoke to induce flowering. On top of the beautiful shape and bigger size the smell is awesome.

    Thanks Zainal. The spike is not clear yet, but the leaves are now getting smaller and pointed on the tallest plant, similar to habenaria medusa that I have blooming now... The spikes do grow a bit slow so maybe I'll only see the susannae flowers open in a couple of months.
