    Default Rhynchostylis gigantea 'stripes' - Survivor from Flood, This Year Bloom #1

    Rhynchostylis gigantea 'stripes'

    Photos of this year's blooming Rhy gigantea, some were taken last week by my bf & some were taken yesterday by myself.
    Sorry about the quality of the pics, as they were taken in the evening, when it wasn't as sunny as in the afternoon ,and I just didn't use the flash.

    Unfortunately, most of my collections just don't bloom as usual due to the temporary evacuation from the flood outside the house. Some of them were moved upstairs, and some were left outside due to there's no spaces upstairs anymore.

    These blooming pics are all from those left outside and still blooming this year. Quite amazing though, because the plants left outside
    have no water for almost 1 month! By the way, some of them have not made it through, and passed away already (mainly small seedlings sizes).
    Luckily, most of the plants don't die, we're so glad to know that.

    Hope that next winter all my favourite ones (and all of them) will provide full bloom again.
    After this group I'll post my last year blooms! (Really reallymiss them!!!!!)

    You can ignore them for a while & when you look at them again, they'll be automaticly bigger!
    But I have to say, my big ones are those we buy from the middle size or bigger than middle size, my little ones are also small like yours ^^
