Don't cut off the whole of old spike - it's quite likely to rebloom from subsidiary branches (BTW got this tip from a post in OTF). My Epi floribundum x Enc cordigera, the pictures of which I posted some time ago, has now put out 3 side branches with, I hope, 3 times the number of flowers!

    I'm posting pictures of the new subsidiary branches. I did cut off the part of the old spike just below the bottom bloom. This has encouraged the growth of the new branch spikes.
    Thanks for sharing the great photos, Yew Sung

    Auza has a very unusual colour pattern ; To have that on the lip is not that rare - e.g.the Encyc which heads the E section in IOSPE ( E.replicata from memory) but to have it on the tepals is most unusual. A nice one and a rare one.
