This is endemic to the forests of the Philippines. This is growing on East facing windowsill of my kitchen; this is an intermediate growing specie that I keep humid and moist all throughout the year…. The flowers are about one and a half inches in diameter and deep violet/bluish petals with a white center. The short flower sprouts out on mature stems and bear up to 3 to 12 flower clusters making it quite spectacular.
I have this in small sized bark, lava rock, charcoal, hydroton and sponge rocks on a plastic netpot but hanging on a wire to let the canes fall free….I used coconut husk fibers and soft wires to hold the media and not fall off the pot.
Fertilizer: weekly weakly alternating Algoflash with seaweed mix and worn tea mix….
Its summer so I water it generously every other day….in winter it gets water only weekly with the fertilizer…
Mine has just started to open a couple of buds - unfortunately just the one spike, and actually on an older keiki on the plant Think I need to hang mine too - was letting the canes hang over the shelf it's on, but didn't think about that eventually the pot will start to tip, which is what it is now doing
Thank You, Sonya !
I just decided to let the plant go with gravity since the lower stem of the cane is thin and the weight of the top is really taxing the plant....now, I like it pendulous rather than tied up a stick.
