    Default Macroclinium manabinum

    I've had this little one for almost a year. Has never done anything, never have seen a new growth or root. But I continued to water thinking it must be the nature of the plant. A month ago while watering I noticed a spike. The entire cluster of blooms reminds me of a fireworks burst. I'm so glad I didn't give up on this one as I really like it!

    It does look like a fireworks burst - only prettier colors! That is a nice one. Thanks for sharing with us.

    They remind me of those little sparkler things you get on independence day. Great result after all the dedication. Congrats.

    Very beautiful mini: my is also flowering right now. And don't cut of the flower spike after the flowering is done: it can flowers continuously a few month from the same spike.
