    Default Ludisia discolor

    I got this one growing in my orchidarium, its been in spike for more than a month, and am finally starting to see some flowers under the bracks of the spike. Lets hope its a nice show! The spike seems to have stopped growing up. Oh and here is the photo challenge, can you spot the frog?

    most growers i know that have 'jewels' say, just cut the spike off, let it focus on leaves, there flowers are boring.

    how can any orchid be boring??????????? i have seen some that are flat out ugly, but never one that's boring

    good growen

    This is scary - I've had 2 pieces of this for over a year. Given to me by 2 different forum members. And after reading this post, I was looking at my plant, and it has a spike!! Yikes! There must be plant hormones travelling the net!

    Yea, where is the frog? I am using my laptop and the screen is so small. I have a hard time seeing big photos because of the scroll factor. LOL. So, give us some location in which to look. I even cheated and went to the frog thread to see what color the little guy was. (Didn't help.) His camo is really good.

    Cheers,

    BD, Gin, if you go to the other picture, it will tell you were to look. The frog is in the same spot here as he was in the other thread.
    YOu must acquire a "Search Image" my young Padiwans
    Also, make sure you are looking at the second picture in this thread, not the first.
