    I loved the picture with the phal hanging from it's roots (first set, p4)...it needs to say "...hang in there". Mounted plants just grow differently. Thanks for sharing. Great pics!

    would like to take this opportunity to ask 2 questions. how do we tell a wild from a cultured bellina?
    secondly i was told that bellina dun send out a spike in the same time they are growing a new leave. is it true? i am asking this because i rescued one beliina and after a few months it is growing something out from the base but also in the same time a new leave at the crown as well. just too excited because it is my first bellina.
    Hi Ian, frankly speaking it's difficult to differentiate between cultured and wild, I saw friend of mine raised from cultured the flowers exactly like wild bellinas especially the parents from the wild, one thing from my observation those bellinas that look flat and rounded mostly cultured from selected clone.
    Second ? it's true only in the wild due to surrounding environment and weather, those from nurseries or our collection that character will disappear especially if you continuously supply adequate water and fertilizer like yours that is flower spike (Congratulations your bellina look very healthy after you rescue him).Most of my bellinas that I attached on the tree behaving like in the wild .

    The flowers look like they are hand-painted.
