    The more anxious you are..the longer they take....(Murphy's Law).

    I have several that I'm waiting on too. (I try not to even look at them unless watering.)

    Everyday I pop my head out to the porch to see if anybody has finally bloomed...the waiting is making me crazy. My Enc. hanburyi is all budded up and at this point must be dragging this out on purpose!

    Your gonna have quite a show when they finally do pop open though!

    looks like we're talking psychopsis here? I'm going on ten+ months with very little growth/change....but I know something is happening as buds are there, are green and they've curled around the stake a little.

    Patience? What's that?
