    Ron, I'm guessing the problem is that you haven't attached yours to a rambutan tree yet. I'm sure that will solve everything.

    I thought it a little bit scary when they started to form the cone shape... but the flower looks way.... beautiful.. can't wait my beccari spiking. I put it under double 50% shade cloth with humidity around 50% and windy too.. should i move to brighter place? I've moved and the foliage burning what should i do? mine has 2 big leafes and 3 small leafes.

    Erly, this plant need bright light and shade make sure there no direct sunlight to the leaves,frequent watering and fertilizer, for flowering this plant is seasonal if conditon is matched the flower bud begin to come out from the base of the huge leaves , consider bonus for you Erly, I saw some of my colleagues put under the black netting single layer they grow very well without scorching their leaves. Make sure proper netting without direct sunlight. Good luck.

    Zain, thank you so much for sharing the pictures! It is just amazing!
    I wish I had read your advice 6 weeks ago before I let my plant get direct sunlight in early morning. A couple hours was enough for leaves to start turning yellow and later brown :-(.Two leaves of my plant started to rot. I cut damaged parts with a sterile knife and used physan 20 for fresh cuts, but it did not help to stop rotting. I had to cut poor leaves twice more. Fortunately, I tried alcohol as disinfectant, and it helped to stop rotting..
    I also remounted my plant; I switched from bamboo pole to tree fern slab. It looks the tree fern slab with some sphagnum moss works the best. This picture shows my plant now


    Thanks you and your terrific pictures, I know now that the growing something on my plant is not a spike but a new growth. Am I right? Here is the picture

    Wow very nice you done the correct thing good growing make sure give more water during growing season, hoping the new leave bigger than the existing one. Good luck Natalwind.

    Yes,very huge plants, need larger space to grow it. The smell doesn't sound good like rotten meats.Because the flowers so beautiful and very strange leaves we don't bother about the smell.
