    Default Odontocidium Roger Cole 'John's Bingo" AM/AOS With Four Spikes

    This is the second year blooming for me and when it does bloom it is generous in producing a number of spikes. Will update when I feel I can capture the most flowers in perfection at once in a photo. Love the almost Fleur-de-Lis shape of the blooms and I think the colors are quite striking (though not the blue you would see in a real Fleur de lis image).

    Thank you all for the nice comments. Patty the biggest changes are more humidity and more winter light. More watering of the Vandas has helped produce more flowers and more frequent blooms. AL

    Four spikes? WTG! That must be one happy plant.

    Default A update on odontocidium roger cole 'john's bingo' am/aos

    I don't know if all four spikes will be in bloom at once as the flowers and spikes are all at different stages of development. Thought I would capture a close up or two now and more fully bloomed out at a later date. Love these colors! AL
