    Default NOID Zygo

    Twice a year bloomer. For the first time it has 3 spikes w/12 buds. Peppery smell. Want a sweet smelling one so it might be time to get a Zygo mackayi.

    Yeah....this is pretty nifty. Sounds real floriferous, 3 spikes! I saw this one for sale not too long ago without any tags, otherwise I'd have an ID for you.

    Derek, Much like the thousands of hybrid phals, there are a lot of hybrid zygos out there. Won't be possible to ever really get the true ID.

    See if you can find a pic of Zygo. Bluebird and compare it.

    Maybe so, but I'm a never say never type of person! Actually, I passed on the Zygo only because it didn't have a tag.

    It is pretty. I miss not having a zygo any longer. I killed ours 'with love'.

    Cheers,
