    Default Howeara Lava Burst - the same spike 5 weeks later...

    And still has a few buds yet to open, the original flowers still good too.
    I am now looking out for the parent species - I have some of them, which are starting to grow quite nicely with a different culture, and I don't want to disturb them with a major change ,but I hope to get some more examples at the shows this Spring - the big European Show (Congress) at Budapest for example,and then grow them in the identical way to to this. Watch this space ( well, watch this forum, if not quite this space ! )

    Wow very beautiful. These are quite dark compared to mine, is this a special clone? I also had bumper blooms this year, but I don't think so many on one spike. Here is a link to mine.

    Yours are definitely brighter than mine - preferable in my eyes ! A super plant you have there - I know that they can be grown into multispiked specimens, but only from seeing pictures such as on Orchidwiz !
    But my good big bulb should (!) give me two leads....

    No I don't know of any clonal name , but the similar ones seem to be cv "Puanan",
