    Smile Eria Hyacinthoides suprise

    I just photographed this last week and saw nothing at all. Today I am doing my watering and found two sweet spikes of buds! I'm not used to growing these and was suprised at the new spikes. It was in spike when I ordered it, but when it arrived they were all nearly gone so I removed them. I didn't know they could bloom from the same spot like this.

    I'll keep an eye out...i'm hoping I can get good pics as I expect the flowers to be tiny. Does anyone else have one? I'd love some culture tips...i'm guessing i've accidentally done something right as it's blooming. Although, some plants bloom before croaking...i'm hoping for this one to live as it also has two new growths.

    Default Both spikes now in bloom...

    This must be the fastest blooming orchid ever! It's only been a week since I found the spike. I wonder how long the flowers last? So far, no smell.
