    Default Ionopsis satyriodes - a Survivor?

    This little fighter has had a rough ride since I got it in Puerto Rico in early January. It bloomed beautifully - tiny, delicate, white flowers. And then I sent it home to Atlanta, hoping it would make it. It did - just barely. It was delivered to the office at my apartment complex and they FORGOT to tell me - so I was looking for it for about 3 days before I happened to go in there to explain about Phillip and make arrangements for being away another long period of time - and some genius overheard me and brought the package out from the back. It was in the same box with Phillip's Memorial Bonsai Flamboyan tree, which I will do a thread on at another time.

    Anyway, I drove both plants down to FL with me at the beginning of February, and after showing every intention of giving up the ghost, I'm seeing, I THINK, some new growth. So, I'll post the photos and let those who are impartial and know better tell me what they think.

    Looks like it is going to bloom. Considering your concerns with it, if they progress to the point wherein you can be confident they are blooms and not keikis, I think I would remove them before the buds fully develop in hopes the plant would divert the energy into vegetative growth. Hopefully, however, they will turn out to be keikis instead this time around.

    Paul, exactly what would you remove and at what spot, exactly? I have no experience with Ionopses.

    Bringing an orchid back from the brink of death is as satisfying as seeing it bloom for me. I hope it makes it.
