First time blooming for me on this one. I got it at a grocery store in Feb. I couldn't resist, even though it had just one faded flower and obvious cultural problems. In less than a week the flowering growth rotted/dried up leaving just a stump. Within a month, the stump put out a new growth which in turn put out the growth that is now blooming.
There were 2 spikes, but I lost one (and most of the leaves) after going crazy with neem oil. All things considered, I'm happy to have even one flower right now. It's been a rough 9 months for this plant!
WOW. very nice.
Good job saving the plant! Congrats!
That is really impressive blue coloring!
Nice save, and such a pretty reward. I'd imagine by the time it blooms next, it'll have an impressive spray of flowers for you. What a delicate color...thanks for sharing!
I love blue orchids. Very lovely!
wow, there's some great colours going on there... good luck with the plant and hope it gets stronger so it can flower to it's full potential!
Thanks, everyone, and I'm hoping it gets stronger too.
Does anyone know what is the makeup/backround of this plant? The name is pretty odd!
What a cool grocery store find. Good job and good job getting back to blooming shape.
