First bloom for this guy. I'm really enjoying this strange little plant and it has been fascinating watching my first flower bloom.
You mentioned you had one in spike Julie--any blooms yet?
Very nice indeed.
I do like the odd Psycho !
Very nice! How big is the bloom??
Love those colors!
I love it!
Very nice, Mehera! My versteegianum spike is 18" long. Diane oh Psychopsis queen, how long will the spike get on that species before it blooms?
I also just got a papilo. It's not in spike, but it's a much bigger plant and has two new leaves that are 5 and 8".
I like the colors and shape on yours, Mehera. There's quite a bit of variation between the species and the crosses. It's fun to see all the differences. How large is your flower tip-to-tip?
hmm... strangely I was never a fan of this (yes I know...) until this pic! COuld have something to do with the sepals (?) being the same colour as a Paph philippinense petals
so guess u have a really nice one Mehera... pity I'm on the other side of the world coz I'm sure you would have loved to have given me a keiki/division
Thanks everyone! This bloom is 6" the longest dimension, and about 5" through the wings (if you support them while you measure). I love this plant! It has thick, heavy, brittle leaves that remind me of plastic and strange little pseudobulbs about the size of marbles. Nice new growth coming on; anyone know if they can put up more than one spike? (I am well aware that probably everyone knows but me! LOL!).
And Tim--I really think you need a nice Psychopsis Mendenhall! I'll bet an import guy like you can find a way! :-)
Wow, thats nice!!! I'm liking Oncidium alliances more and more
