I was waiting for my Empress Wolsley Roman Holiday bloom to open, but found it on the ground this morning. What happened. Too much rain?
I guess thats the answere...to much rain,or slight difference in temp can also do this...soon the crew will pass by and give you expert answers
Thanks Clive, it is a nuisance. I don't see any other movement on the other pseudobulbs, yet.
More often than not it is caused by change in temperatures (dramatic changes, that is) which is out of your control, unless you have a controlled temp greenhouse. Intermediate growers do not like drops in night temps. The firts sign of protest is the discarding of the buds. Good luck.
Thanks Rose, I think that is it. The past two months here have been crazy. V. hot days around the 30 deg. C. Then cooler days with rain, temp. dropping down to 20 deg. C, rain, hot sun, rain, it is supposed to be summer here in Brisbane. But this Blc must be very tempermental, as 2 other Cats. still have their buds intact. So all is not lost for this Blc I will prob. have to wait until next December for a flower.
Sounds like the temperature has much to do with this.
