    Your plant is an exceptional form of the species - and I bet if it grew 5ft spikes it will intimidate the rest of your collection into hybernation. In my valley (east coast of Africa) plants easily grow that size and I must admit it sometimes becomes a problem, especially if you have a Den in a small pot with all these long shoots and 3 or 4 spikes with 20+ flowers on each. My Schom seems to be getting very excited about climbing out of the pot too.

    For me, Geoff, I would have shared this in the cattleya, vanda, dendrobium section of the forum but here in other genera is equally acceptable as well. Lovely blooms, Sir!!

    cheers,

    As a matter of general interest do you think Bruce ( when you get around to reading this) that a Schom' should be in this forum , or in the Cattleyas ? It's a point I often wonder about in most of the forums . ( For those not quite so taxonomically minded, Schomburgkia is a very close relative - both are in the same grouping - the Laeliniae ).

    Two spikes here - I'm thrilled - they are so rarely seen in UK, and then usually on plants newly imported. I have had this plant three years now and I knew it was doing better when it produced two leads...I have a couple of other species also doing well, one of which ( S. moyambae also produced two leads and two spikes, but a slug found them whilst I was away in January, and there is not much in the way of flower bud left. The bulbs are OK - these plants are carved from mahogany or something similar, I doubt if a slug could touch a bulb - although a new growth might be a bit more tender).
    However, stop wandering off the point Geoff... S.rosea has flowers 2 inch across, and the raceme or whatever it is ( I'm forgetting my basic botany now ! ) is on stems 15-20 inches long, above bulbs which are 8-10 inch high. Not big by Schomburgkia standards , I have seen them in Venezuela with flower stems five feet long and flowers twice this size - but don't know what species that was ( wish I did ! ) - I might just get them in my greenhouse, and would certainly like to try !.
