    Default I can't wait

    It has 10 spikes and I can't wait. I bought it last year from a man that was moving out of the area and I am not sure of the name but I think that it is Ascocentrum Miniatium, can't read the writing so I would appreciate any spell correction. Will post a pic when it is in bloom.
    Thanks, Cin

    Default Ascocentrum miniatum

    Here's a description I found.

    "Temperature: I.W.
    Country: Java
    Synonym/s: A. garayi (mistakenly)

    Description of Ascocentrum miniatum : Ascocentrum miniatum produces bright orange erect bottle brush like flower spikes. A dwarf grower, this should be grown in a small basket or slotted pot. Growing media needs to be open and well drained."

    and here's another picture i located on an individual's growlist site.

    hope this is of assistance.

    Hold you breath Hoa, I only paid $15 for it. I also got lots of Dens. and Cats for $5 ea. He must have had 500 plants around his pool cage.
    Thanks everybody else for all of the info.
