A plant I've had for a while, 1st flowering. I think it will do better when I grow it well. 6 spikes, 4 with good flower count, 2 with poor.

What a deep eggy colour. It reminds me of lemon curd.
It is a real gem. Thank you for putting up the photo.

Beautiful flowers!
Obviously the plant has been persuaded that spring is autumn and autumn is spring.
Seriously, I often wonder if seasonal plants changing hemispheres get some botanical equivalent of jet lag.

Not sure what you mean in seasons. Its Spring here & its a winter/spring flowerer.

Joke Roy.

But I think the same plant kept in the northern countries flowers in the northern spring.
So I was musing what happens when a plant goes from northern to southern patterns, or vice versa.

Hi Alec

I have found plants which are imported from the Southern hemisphere take eighteen months to settle down before they start flowering, a good example are plants bought at the London Orchid Show from Equagenera.
