    What a gorgeous plant! Congragulations!
    I have this bulbo, too. I bought the plant about 14 months ago with 6 leafless bulbs, 2 mature bulbs and 1 new growth. Three or the leafless bulbs got rotten, so I had to remove them. The plant developed 6 bulbs since I bought it. Two of new bulbs are leafless now (1st and 2nd from the left). Anyway, the plant has enough mature bulbs to bloom, bub it does not bloom yet.
    I'll appreciate any advice!

    Bruce, is it so obvious?!?! I was trying to convince myself that is not that bad... But as I am looking, I am out of space, have pods on the floor for couple of days now trying to figure where to put them..., have 3 flasks for deflasking and also have my eye on two more...OK not saying anything else because i am getting scared...

    Hi Natali, the plant that you have seems big enough to bloom... I have one that is about the same size which also hasn't flowered yet... hopefully one of our members who has bloomed this will advise if they do anything esp to promote blooming.

    Have u tried giving it more bloom fert?

    cheers

    Hi, thank you for response!
    You know I don't fertilize my plants too much, because they live outside all the time and therefore get natural fertilizers as tree frog and lizard's poo. But, I did try bloom booster once or twice. No results so far.

    Hi there,

    I hope your plant is blooming now, and I'd like to see pictures!
