No buds. I don't expect it to bloom this season, but maybe it will, idk.
There is that huge dormant "eye" with the brown sheath you see in front of it. I don't know if that's a potential new shoot or a potential new bloom.
Jennyfleur, I've been asking about Pleiones for years. All I get is that depressing - "You're too warm for it." talk. This time I said - "Screw it all! 'Cuz I'm a rebel like that!"
I looked up most of the Pleione species on the IOSPE, and based on the listed elevations as well as my experience with certain species of Cypripediums, I think I can
grow a good majority of them!

So, to hell with being too warm to grow Pleiones!
