This thing is a total freak. It ended up putting out 11 blooms and is now throwing another spike. I repotted it back in July and it is again climbing out the top. The root growth is incredible and has pretty much doubled its mass in 5 months.

I wish I knew! The leaves don’t look all that great but the rest of the pliant is explosive. 🚀

I tossed my zygo for the foliage reason. However, one of our members suggested spraying ever two weeks with Neem oil. That does seem to help.

Dolly, do I remember you saying you tried using the brown Listerine to attempt having better Zygo leaves? Or was that something else? And did you ever come to a conclusion that the Listerine was helpful or not? Curious, and poor memory...

What's the deal with Zygo leaves and Listerine?

Good morning WW. I used clear listerine for quite awhile. I do not think it helped in the slightest. My foliage was nearly black, although the plant grew like a weed and flowered several times a year. I couldn't stand to look at it! I do think it liked running cooler than 70s. However, spraying with Neem does seem to have helped my other zygo hybrids. Some of which seem naturally more robust and cleaner than others.

It has antiseptic properties. A couple growers suggested it or windex, as an anti fungal.

Is that a common thing to be aware of when growing them?
Just curious, I hope I'm not killing my Zygo without realising it!

Thanks Dolly, and good morning to you.

I thought I remembered us talking about that, but never heard how it turned out. Rats! Could have been a cheap answer.

MrFakeName... a lot of folks have trouble with crappy leaves on Zygos. Some more than others. If you don't, that's great!
