    Are the pseudo bulbs virtually flat on yours?

    I have a Wilsonara I bought past bloom, it has flat p-bulbs too. I haven't seen it bloom yet, but it's a strong grower, so I expect I will. I like this one a lot! Mine is Wils. Pacific Panache 'Fireside Fever'. I bought it expecting it would be red for some reason! lol I've since looked it up and it should be quite pretty. Also a bargain bin plant, most of mine are. I love it when you get a named variety cheap like that and can have some idea what it will look like.

    I found a bonus on the Wils I bought today.

    It looks like another spike is emerging on my plant. It was caught on another pseudo bulb and has a U bend in it. I released it and now it should be able to flourish and grow. Hopefully it will bloom.

    Mine was also trapped tight by the leaf and it has a big circle in the stem, I caught the second shoot fast so it only has a bend which I hope will straighten up with time.
