    Default My Aerides crispum / crispa in bloom

    Hi, here are the photos of my Aerides crispum keikis blooming for the first time. Last year the mother plants bloomed for the first time in 7 years, this year they took a rest but the keikis flowered.

    5 more of these are in bloom, but they are very ungainly and potted in clay pots are growing in the jungle part of my greenhouse hehe.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments !! Yes Mazlan it is heat tolerant, this summer we had 40 oC and last year 42 oC for a few weeks hehe, actually the rise in temperature triggers the blooms along with the dry rest.
