    Default Calanthe vestita var. fournerii

    Pink bunnies!

    This thing is blooming on two spikes this year, with a third one on the way, I think. Either that or spring growth is starting 2-3 months early.

    Calanthe are fantasticly easy and floriferous, attractive all year-round, and deciduous for convenient overwintering.

    Here's a pic of the flowers:

    And this is what the plant looks like at this time of year:

    I'll be dividing this when it's done blooming. I'll repost in the 'for trade/sale' forum at that time.

    So this one dies back like a cycnodes each year? The flower shape looks very familiar. Did someone post something like this here in the recent past? Maybe I saw it surfing. Hmm. Interesting plant though!

    Cheers!

    Yeah – late fall, all the leaves fall off, leaving those odd bulby things. Around that time, the blooming spikes appear and bloom for maybe 8 - 10 weeks. New growth starts a little after the spikes die back. A very easy grower and bloomer.

    I'll probably divide it this year.
