    Default Rhyncostylis coelestis

    3 spikes but the hot and rainy spell has caused the the last few buds of the spike to rot and dry up, thus the shorter than normal spikes.

    Lovely sight, Yew-Sung. My rhynchostylis is taking forever to grow. How much sun is recommended?

    Thanks Angel. Not too much sun - the same as for the strap leaved vanda. I grow all my orchids under 70% shade cloth.

    I think that mine is under too much shade. I acquired mine as a young plant about 4 years ago. It had only 2 or 3 leaves then. I attached it to a hibiscus and pretty soon its robust roots began creeping in all directions. However, after all this time, it has grown very little. Many of its roots have since dried up but it is recovering now with some new roots. I think I should have bought a bigger, more established plant. Oh well!

    I'm lucky my regular vendors here normally bring in species in bloom. Hope yours bloom the next season.
