    A very recent purchase - but then without flowers, and although a robust , good-sized plant - best cane perhaps 3 feet high ( I've missed off the top 10 inches or so in the pic) looked as though it had never flowered. It produced these two on an old - very old ! almost the oldest, cane which is barely one foot high and very thin too, within a month of arriving in my collection . Must like it !
    So what will the bigger new canes do, when ripe and ready ? I look forward to finding out.

    The dealer told me he regarded this as an indictor plant for red spider mite - if its anywhere in the collection, its here. ( It is clean now) But I don't suffer from red spider mite, maybe my conditions are unsuitable for that pest, which is said to like hot dry conditions. My greenhouse is cool, and humid. Maybe the dealers treatments to keep it clean prevented it from flowering ? Poisons which kill bugs will kill plants too - its a fine balance, and mainly a matter of dosage . A tiny dose will kill the bugs, but not harm the plant (much) but maybe enough to deter flowering ?
    Well, its a theory. And if I don't need to keep spraying it, maybe it will reward me with lots of flowers. Wouldn't that be nice.
