    Default Clowesetum Loppe Farlansiae

    i posted this one a month plus ago, but decided to post this again because of the strange behavior of this bulb, it produced two spike then went into dormancy and after a month plus, it break dormancy by producing this spike and not a new growth.

    While I prefer the more colorful flowers, the lip detail is amazing!

    It looks really great and nice to have more flowers, will it still produce a new growth?

    yes, new growth will appear in the future, it is unusual for them to flower, then go into dormancy and then flower again. this one is just with one pseudobulb plant, not really established plant. once the plant is established, lets say three to four pseudobulb per pot, it should produce very attractive number of inflorescence, like most clowesetum does.

    thanks for the comment everyone
