Jan 11 bloomer

This is pot Melinda Rose Funke "Irene". I like the art shades and this is a favorite. It produce four spikes, 2 in sheath and 2 without. I moved it from my semi green house into my home when the first flowers started to open on the sheathed spikes. Bad on me....the opened and half opened flower wilted immediately and the 2 unopened sheathed buds blasted.

The picture is of the two spikes that came without sheaths.

Not sure what lesson I learned here but will certainly delay moving in the future.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Very nice! I've often been tempted to buy it on-line from Hausermann's. Is it fragrant?

Only slightly fragrant but it hasn't begun to wilt yet and I lost the first two spikes so I consider it long blooming for a catt.

It is still beautiful. Sometimes they are so strong and other times you just dont know what will happen. The colors are striking. Tricia
