    Default another lobbii

    I have 4 or 5 plants of this species....It is quite the eloquent flower IMHO. It seems that when one plant finishes another lobbii starts...I couldn't had planned it better if I tried. It is funny, I just realized that each one is grown differently. One on a treefern pole, one in a slat basket, one cork on and this one growing in and out of a treefern pot. The fifth, I really think is a related, unidentified species.

    That is a cool shot, Ron. It looks like they are floating in space.

    Cheers,

    They do float and bounce in the breeze. The spike is 7+ inches long on this one . This one is growing in and on a treefern pot that is kept hanging.
