I received this plant months ago while the spikes were still very small. I assumed at first there was something wrong as the spikes kept growing and growing and not looking at all like it was developing flower buds. But, after I took a few pictures, I realized the buds develop under a sheer piece of sheath-like material. After the buds break through the skin like material I still had a couple weeks of waiting before they began blooming. This is one interesting plant. The flowers are small but interesting. No scent yet...
Pretty flowers, Connie. Let us know if it develops any fragrance...Betty
Oh... that is very beautiful any fragrance Connie?
It often seems as if the best sucess's require patience and the ability to accept some frustation as natural. This very nice and obviously interesting orchid falls into that category. Great form here! AL
Still no fragrance but the flowers are so pretty I don't mind.
Lovely flowers and a nice plant too, congrats Connie!
Quite an unusual one !
What a cool orchid, Connie. Really interesting and different blooms.
