    An Aeranthes or five does a person well.

    Why does my grandiflora have such short inflorescences? They are maybe 15cm from plant to flower.

    When my plant was younger, all the spikes were shorter and now, sometimes some are long....
    Thiis time for example ithas three spikes, two short (14-15cm) and one much longer!!

    I wish you success - Angranthes Grandalena is a gorgeous primary that orchids limited were selling a while back, but can't be found anymore.
