    Was not sure if I had the culture right on this guy but it blessed me with 5 spikes on it's first blooming . Smells like fresh ginger.

    You'd think that thing was dead...instead it gives you tons of flowers! What pretty little things they are too...the color and esp. the lip.

    Cj - That's the trick with Clowesia. Once the leave die off, you do not water unless the pbulbs start to shrivel. Within a couple of months you will see the spikes begin and once they are about 1 inch long, start to water weekly. You cannot imagine how hard it is not to water a plant! The temptation is great
