    Thanks.

    The flowers are creamy yellow/yellowish white. They are not white like yours.
    I don't have T. quisumbingii and I don't know about other significant difference between these two species either, other than the spike length and flower count.

    Default tuberolabium

    My Tuberolabium quisumbingii bloomed on 4 spikes this year. Do you water it everyday like I do?

    No, I don't water mine everyday. If I do, the plant will rot.

    Tom, I just purchased one of these. It wasn't mentioned that it was in spike but it appears to be. Is this the appropriate time of year to expect this? When it arrived, it was as dry as a bone! I had to soak it down as I was fearful it would die from the shock of drying out so badly, however, it seems to have recovered. Are they very hardy?

    It normally blooms in mid-late winter or in very early spring. The flower spikes will take a long time to develop.
    No, it isn't an easy one to grow IMO. It will rot easily in winter if you keep it too wet while the temperature isn't warm enough. In general, I let it dry out slight between watering.

    All the Tuberolabium species that I seen and grow will have thick/fat roots. Humidity and watering frequency may have some effects on them but over all, they should have decent sized roots.

    Tom, what do you say about watering? When it's not quite warm (<55 outside/therefore, cooler inside as well), I water three times a week but when it gets warmer (when I have to put the air conditioning on), four times a week. Does that sound about right to you??? Of course my humidity levels stay constant, between 60 and 80 and I try to maintain good watering practices without them remaining too damp at night (contributing to rot). Recently, I began watering when it is almost completely dried out and I soak it through. After I do all the others, I turn the fan on high and put it in a corner where it gets a lot of air underneath. When I do that, it literally perks right up
