First time my gongora armeniaca has flowered, seven spikes on the way. Got it as a small seedling a few years ago, much easier grower than my temperemental galeata, and probably going to put on a much better display...

Chris was that a galeata or ameniaca? i found galeata to be very slow growing compared the armeniaca, and i thought mine was going to die several times.

Smashing, interesting flowers, tried at least 3 times in the past to grow them but like Chris, mine always seemed to develop blotched leaves (the same always happens whenever I try to grow Zygo's).

Haven't given up on Gongoras though, I'm bound to try again in the future.

I took several years before i got the galeata to grow, it was awfully slow for a long while. Actually both of them went very pale this year and have holes in the leaves, too bright a position for mine i suspect and maybe slug damage as well. Several new shoots rotted off earlier i the year not sure why as they seem to like it wet and get sprayed most of the year without problems.

Not had black spots yet, what do you think it was?

I'm thinking for me it as sort of fungal or bacterial as, my orginal plant did it and removed all leafs. It came back very well and I had something happen in the greenhouse. Lost a lot of stuff which has got to have been bacterial as the fungicides didn't work. And the gongora was one that wheat down hill again
