    I'm a Singaporean living in Hong Kong... So I have the benefit of the cool winters here.... Not sure if the Zygos will bloom without the chill... You will have to consult some of the Malaysian/SE Asian experts who are on this forum too... Catttan?

    Thanks Eeyore! From what I remember, Zygos don't do well in hot lowlands. Your Singapore flag gave me a glimmer of hope though... haha... Happy growing!

    Love the intense coloring this time. Must be temperature change that caused the stronger coloring.

    cheers,

    Second round of blooms after I split the original plant up into 3! So hard to capture the real shade of purple - it's much more blue than in the photos.

    I recently lost my Zygo Advance Australia to disease.

    Very sorry to hear that, Harvey. Planning to get a replacement?
