den. Haleahi twist, still going

shavedmonkey (Harvey in South Fl.)Z10bApril 23, 2014

This plant has been in bloom for 15 or 16 months. It slowed during the winter. There are 2 spikes with flower. And many bumps near the top of the canes which means more inflo's. Also 2 new canes are up and coming. All around good health.

Wow, that's impressive. Any keikis? Or divisions?

Very pretty. How big are the blooms? They look very tiny.

Sorry, I've never seen a keiki on this plant. I've had it for a long time. It also does not offer easy divisions. The picture shows the new growth in a not conducive opportunity to take a division. It is growing in a pot that was put in a wooden basket. The pot is no longer visible.

The flowers are small but a little bigger than tiny. At the widest diameter it is about 2". Currently there are 2 mature inflo's with 2 getting started about 4 or 5 inches. And about 6 little nubs on various canes getting ready to come out. The spikes get quite long. Maybe 30". The current 2 spikes are smaller as they had to endure winter temps.

A view of the "nubs". Part of the reason that this plant continues to flower is that the canes will continue for several years to provide spikes.

The Orchid Trail has it for sale along with 4 or 5 other antelope type hybrids. Are you familiar with any of their others? I think I will try this one and maybe get a couple of others along the same line.

I've had antenatum. Lost it to a hurricane. It also stayed in bloom for a long time. This Den. is one of my favorites. If I lost it I'd get another. It has won several blue ribbons when I was competing for ribbons. I wish there was an easy division for you Nick. I'm willing if the plant is willing. But experience tells me to let this plant be.

Thanks I know what you are talking about. No problem, it is readily available and I'll get one or two. They are seedlings so will look different.

Thank you for posting the closer photo. I can see they aren't tiny, but lovely.

I reported the name in error. My apologies. It should be Haleahi twist x canaliculatum.

When looking at what Orchid Trail has I thought that might be the one you showed:
Den. (Haleahi Twist x canaliculatum) x Den. canaliculatum.
Antelope types; all four were made with different color forms of parents but colors of seedling have been so variable that all are lumped here. Flowers vary from light yellow through dark brown ; most with purple lips. Plants should stay under 16 inches, most smaller. Flowering size.
Items # ; 10463, 10464 10465, 10468

I will order one or two.
