I got this as an established cutting a little over 1 1/2 year ago. When it arrived there were 9 growths of which 3 had the leaf portions gone leaving 6 new growths and 4 tiny black flowers.
I was hoping to see it rebloom and in June it looked like this.
I was pleased to see the flowers return and surprised at how much larger they were compared to the originals when I got it. It is now Jan and the plant is still blooming, I was wondering if this is a continuous bloomer since I was basically floored when it kept sending out new growth and flowers since. Thanks in advance.
Also happy to note my Raisin Pie Lady Slipper is close to opening, the Trick or Treat Cat is getting there and is the other Cat (Intermedia Var X Maxima Var Hecor) 4 of my 5 orchids either in bloom or close to it and my Phal resting.
Love this one!
**Moved to the photography section of the forum.** Do you have a shot of the bloom?
"Sporadic" bloomer, IME, would be a more accurate description.
Here are a couple of quick snaps, you can't see them but there at least 6 more ready to pop out in the rear.
Also a quick couple of the Raisin Pie
