    Smile Odontoglossum Anna Claire in Spike

    Hi, as I was looking at my phals I discovered a flower spike on my Odm. Anna Claire 'Floriculture'. At first I wasn't sure what it was, as I could only see it through the leaves, however as it grew it seemed to be trapped and became a little bit distorted, so I gave it a little help to come out properly….

    I hate when the spike gets stuck. Good that you found it and could help it get out. I look forward to the blooms!

    Cheers,

    Hi everyone, I'm adding some updates to my Odontoglossum. The flower spike has grown pretty fast (compared to my phals!) and has now reached 30 cms with four buds. Well, its not a lot but I'm quite happy cause it is flowering for the first time, from a seedling that I purchased two years ago. It's going to be my first flowering for the year as well!! Buds should open within a couple of weeks I guess
