2 years in the life of N.flava

Recommended Posts

On arrival June 2005. Unfortunately the clone was not identified and Andreas has since been unable to tell me which it was

Whole plant (front,right) September 2006. It's now strongly vining - about 1 1/2ft long

Next - proper upper? July 2007. I am looking forward to seeing this, but I have seen some examples in cultivation which do not match the attractiveness of the wild photographs. Time will tell

Amazing growth in such a short time!! Whats your secret?? 8)

My plant still looks like the 3rd picture and yet is also about 2 years old! :wink:

Be interesting to see the upper, because as you say uppers grown in cultivation have lacked the full beauty of the wild plant.

cheers

Thanks for the comments. :wink:

No particular secrets - I just try to get as close to the 'highland ideal' as the variable British (not jungle unfortunately) weather and my purse will allow.

Indeed, I hope to be able to post a few more '2 years in the life of' collections and other updates in the future.

I love sharing all this stuff, a feeling only spoiled by the paranoia that some b*stard will latch on to the posts I have made and come up with the idea of going robbing - as has happened to me in the past with orchids. Regrettably we clearly have a few light fingered people among us already, as recent open days have proved. This is a particular shame, as one of the reasons I love CPs is the great community spirit.

I have some comfort that anyone in my neck of the woods will be very visible and I do take technological precautions, which I will not elaborate on for obvious reasons.

Best to all,

Dave
