Difficult to count - but maybe 60 or so flowers. I have three plants of this species now all in pots with medium bark . Two have spikes almost identical ( this is one of them) grown on oposite sides of the greenhouse, differeing primarily i the amount of light the plants get. You see the colour of the leaves here , the other one has leaves almost yellow with the light , but virtually identical flowers. Obviously lkight is not critical !. The hird one is perhaps slightly darker green, but has a shorter spike, maybe only half the length.
It certianly is Aerides time at the moment, as I have several other species all in advanced spike. Watch this space.
I really like how the spike dangles...not to mention the color of the flowers. Too pretty....
Love them Aerides and look forward to your continueing posts Geoff. I hope all is going well with your wife and I wish her a speedy recovery. Surgery can be so benefical, but such a pain.......................AL
Very lovely species !
Now that is a spike full of flowers. What a spectacular orchid!
I love the crystaline texture displayed in the first Photo. Beautiful species.
I will certainly keep a watch on this space.
Really like this one!
Lovely - one of showiest aerides around!
wow, what a spike with a sea of flowers. i have this one too, but I maybe have to wait til next year to see a bloom.
