Where are we at today? (June 19, 2008)

Here is the update for today:

Angraecum didieri continues to set the second successful flower spike since I moved it into the "tank". It never did a thing except new growths while upstairs in grow window. Now it is doing it's thing. I am guessing two weeks before blossom.

Aerangis citrata has at least one strong spike developing. There might be second following. It's still a ways off till bloom.

Aerangis luteo-alba var. rhodosticta has at least three discernible spikes. This should be at least as big a display as last year!

Gastochilus somai has two very strong spikes (lots of buds) like last year. Still a ways off before bloom.

Dyakia hendersonianium has only one long spike this year (compared to two last year.) Still a ways off.

Ceratocentron fesselii has what looks to be a first spike. It always could be a root, but the structure looks different. If so, this will be my first bloom for this little guy!

The moniliforme Dendrobiums continue to amaze me with their very weird behavior. I still haven't figured these guys out. There is lots of growth, but why do some buds go to keiki and others not? Why do keikis, when cut off the parent plant, start forming a flower bud? That's weird!

The Haraellas continue to put out blossoms as they always do. Wish the fragrance would develope.

Aerangis hyaloids finally bit-the-dust do to over abundance of blossoms (it bloomed itself to death.) Might try this again in the future, but not right now.

I am planning a new purchase in next couple weeks. Will post what I finally aquire when that happens.
