Thanks everyone for looking in and for your comments. Hope to be able to keep it going for some time and be rewarded with twice the number of blooms . Hehehe
I can see why you love her - a find like this is not to be tossed aside!
I love this orchid. Such a beauty. And congrats on successful growing/blooming! I know this is a bit of an old thread, but can you tell me your potting medium and watering schedule? I have 3 plants I have had since early this year, and I am still trying to find good information on it. Thanks.
A grex I have, and occasionally flower - but not the 4n parent I guess, so mine is much more humble. You are to be congratulated/envied .
I have mentioned that I have killed my fair share of Irene Dobkin and this particular clone seems to be quite hardy. BTW this plant is now putting out 2 spikes and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the current rainy spell will not give me any fungus problems. I think I'll have to find me a couple more Irene Dobkins just for insurance. But not easy to find here though.
Thanks for the info, Cattan. That is very interesting, and duly noted. I grow mine in coconut husk chips in wooden baskets. They seem to be happy only when I keep them constantly moist. Do you have any other words of advice for growing this beauty? I want to gather as much information as I can from others' experience with Ascps Irene Dobkin. Thank you again! God bless!
