    Amey, I don't have any special fertilization schedule for the plant, sorry. In fact, I often forget to water the plant Since we have high humidity and heavy rains here in Florida, the plant gets what it needs. I fertilize it once a month or two with a fertilizer I have available. I mostly use balanced fertilizers like Jacks Classic 20-20-20 or any balanced fertilizer I can buy in a garden store. I never use bloom boosters etc. First two years I kept the plant in my walk-in greenhouse during cold winter nights, but beginning with December 2010 the plant remains outside (on the porch) all year along. I just cover it with a few sheets when night temperatures drop below zero C. Every year the plant develops a few seed pots and young selfings appear in the pot periodically. The plant breeds very easily.

    Thanks for the info. about the potting mix and fertilization Natalie. I think I need to change the potting mix for mine, it is potted in very big chunky medium, may be that is not allowing the roots all the moisture and nutrients they need.

    How did I miss this post the first time around? Wow, wow, wow! 25 spikes!! Amazing!!! And I love your photos. The one taken above the blooms, showing just the whites of the petals and sepals is especially cool. I am jealous. I have killed two of these. They rotted; too wet I guess.
