    Anybody have one spiking? I'd like to get some capsules on my plant this year.

    Beautiful!
    Mine aren't even in spike yet.
    They usually bloom in October for me.
    I can save some for you, though...

    Thank you, Karen. My plant's a little over 14" tall now and I'm starting to see a few buds. It bloomed for a long time last year, though, so we may still be able to make a pollen exchange.

    I have some that I just got this year...not sure if they will bloom, as I don't know how to grow them. So far, only leaves, but if they do, I can send some to you too!

    One of mine jumped out of the gate way faster than the others and is in bud. My guess is that I'll have open flowers in a week or two. I'd be happy to send you pollen.

    Wonderful! My plant's at about the same stage of development.

    Would you like reciprocal pollen?

    I'll ponder that for a few more days. I might need some instruction on pulling the pollen as I've only had experience pollinating this forum's most detested orchid, Paphiopedilums.:poke:
