Den Hawaii Spectacular
Default My Hawaii Spectacular

We keep the plant outside here in Naples, FL (southwest coast) on the lanai which has a pool cage. I put the plant out in the sun for the picture, but it usually is not in direct sun all day. We water them once a week in warm months, and twice a week in the dry season, and feed them weekly. They are not out in the rain, but given the humidity level around here, I don't think I need to supplement that. Humidity levels range from 50 - 100% and the coldest it ever gets is high 40's for maybe one or two nights in winter. Most of the time winter nights are in the high 50's. Summer temperatures can get into the high 90's with nighttime lows in the low 70's.

The tag has the date 8/17/17; not sure if that is when it was started. I bought it in April of 2018 with two others. One of them, Little Green Apples, has a flower spike. The plant itself is a lot smaller.

Hopefully, this guy will start to put out some flowers soon. Your plants are gorgeous! I hope mine gets to be half as nice.

I think your plant looks healthy and large enough to bloom. Mine first bloomed around the size of your plant. I grew mine on a south-facing window (indoors) in GA.

Just give it a little more time. These plants usually grow over the summer and fall months, start a flower spike in Jan/Feb, and bloom in Feb/March for me.

And as your plant grows larger, you'll get a better show each year as new and old psedobulbs can flower. It will take a few more years to get there though. As Roberta on this board says... patience...!

Good luck!
