    Default Eria javanica

    Hi folks,

    first time flowering plant and not the best, hopefully next time!
    This is the type species for this genus, it also re-flowers from the same spike, while it can stay dormant for many months.
    There is a few color variations out there and all are nice, this clone shows a dark purple blotch on the labellum apex.

    Cheers!

    Hi Ron-
    Lovely sparkle, like Bruce says! Congratulations on the photography, by the way. You are obviously so right about the different and unpredictable colour forms out there. I have not seen many, but I like the striped sepals of yours, and the delicate shading. The name Eria javanica is brandad on my brain because the first one I ever saw was an incredible shock: the flowers were warm and ice-cold at the same time, TUQUOISE- creamy blue/green. I know it was not a hallucination because there is a photo of it in a fairly recent book I have. That was a surprise too!

    Lovely!! Mine is plain yellow, I think, because it has been years since it last bloomed, LOL. Thanks for sharing Ron.

    It is wonderful for me to find all you guys who have what is for me such an out-of-the-way species! So comforting!

    Hi Mazlan,
    i recently repotted it and gave it more light, maybe that did the job?
