Some blooming species
 
I'm not sure if there will be many blooms to enjoy for the rest of the summer; most of my plants were toasted when I moved, then decimated by slugs, and now spider mites are taking on the remaining buds.

Hopefully some flowers will pull through, I'll update this thread as they mature.


Here's a Phal bellina f. coerulea:

And a Phal lowii.
The spike was broken and this flower was squished during transport but thankfully the remaining one develops normally:

very nice,
your coerulea actually looks exactly like mine when it flowers but mine was ravaged by mites, most likely worse than yours.
I don't blame them, the Bellina is delicious :biggrin:

Weeeell this bellina is probably going to die, it didn't like the heatwave very much.
Time to get the tissue culture equipment ready for emergency cloning.

40°C (104°F) ambient temp with full sun.

The problem is that the transport crates I used were dark blue plastic. I put them aside on the balcony to unload the car, and in the meantime the sun moved just enough to hit the boxes and melt their content.

parishii
Japonica
lowii
Bellina ( or any violacia)

Ouch. If it wasn't too long the crown may survive. I've done that here.
