This is a wonderful surprise because I completely forgot about the existence of this plant and then I read about two members posting about their plant in bloom…that is when I realized I also have a didieri…. I found it right smack on the top shelf of the south facing window in bud and three more spikes forming on middle of the leaf of the stem (see picture)
This plant flowers in late summer to fall months which is early bloom for the two members and me…. The flowers are large in size, in proportion to the plant. Plants that are barely 3" leaf span across can produce flowers 2" in size….my flower is 4 inches big….Flowers of didieri are star-shaped with white, rounded, somewhat elongated lips, and has fragrance in the evening smelling like a combination of spicy candy and talcum powder. When buds appear and during the flowering period, I feel it is important to keep this plant more evenly moist between watering.
* I will add more pictures when the other spikes open its blooms
