There have been several of these posted lately with Angela's being by far the most spectacular of them all. I bought two of these a year ago. The one I repotted in a wire basket with a moss liner and some large bark. The second I never got around to replanting. They over-wintered in my basement under lights. Both received the same care and yes the same neglect--after all I am an equal opportunity grower. LOL The one in the basket is growing and sending out new growths but no blooms. The one left in its original pot gave me two beautiful spikes--go figure. Perhaps the one in the basket needs to go back to a pot. I never expect to have the beautiful specimen plants that those living in the tropics have but will be happy with results like this each year. I love the color and form of the flowers and the fact that they seem to last forever is a big plus.
Haaha Uly, this is the one you are badly in need of.
very nice, good growing
bill youre doing great! im in the tropics and i have abused mine so bad that if it could talk it would curse me like ike turner on a bad day... im hoping mine will do better later this summer but yours is lovely!
WOW - just WOW! What a beautiful double spiked Grammatophyllum orchid! Nice growing.
WOW is right! Lovely and big........................AL
Amazingly well grown !
Congrats Bill. Your blooms are lovely, so you must be doing something right.
Sorry my basket idea did not work out for you, but If you have the patience to keep the plant in the basket for a little while longer all those new Psb will come into bloom all at once, and you will have a spectacular show. After putting mine into the basket I had to wait for 2 years before It bloomed. It has not stopped since.
Not a criticism, but an observation: your leaves look rather curled, where they should be flat and straightup. is something going on there?
Good Luck, and Congrats.
I just got one of these today on sale. I'm going to read up on it's culture and then find a good spot on a tree to attach it. We'll see how it goes. Bill's is quite beautiful; something to look forwards to someday.
