    This is my Miltassia. I bought it at the show in Arenys de Mar on May 31st. So far none of the blooms has wilted yet. I really hope it will give me as many spikes as yours, Coeruleo.

    Very pretty, Jesus!

    I'm waiting for spikes on my Miltassia's now. The new pbs are not quite yet exposed on them, so it is a bit early to start looking for them.

    well, the larger spike is still going strong, but the smaller spike is now fading quickly. i think all the orchid honey dripping off the flowers causes them to get all sticky where they would be pollinated and causes the flowers to fade, knowing they won't be able to be pollinated with all the sap in the way?????? just a thought...

    lol Yes, I hope you don't freak out at the spiders. My Shelob is making a comeback, I watch it like a hawk, because I just love the things. I sure enjoy seeing yours.

    they do make a comeback too. my first one showed up in such dreadful condition... it took 2 years to get back to flowering, and that was outside year round. i thought for sure it was going to die. it's having its 3rd spike now, should be open soon. i want one of the other varieties of shelob... one for the bedroom, just out of curiosity to see if there is any difference. i don't see any in photos online. but there is one called 'red spider' and one i see now listed as 'red spider2' and there was one called 'webmaster' i think but have not seen it recently available. this larger plant is in bloom or in spike almost the whole year now. there is a third spike about half grown, and 2 more bulbs coming up, and i noticed another new growth today.
