Finally got one flower after 3/4 years and that was a miracle. It had a bad summer also. Big flower with a lovely fragrance.

Great job!
I have had mine for two years. Bought blooming size with sheath---ended up empty---and it has never bloomed.
Lovely fat new pseudo bulbs but no blooms.
Any idea what the trick was??
Thanks,
Jan

Thanks. It was a long time coming. Jan, my guess is maturity. Mine would throw blank shealths also, year after year. This year it was totally neglected, suffered bad sunburn (had to cut off a pbulb) but sent up another growth with sheath. One flowered the other was destroyed by scale, or rather my treatment of scale. Bad year!

Nothing different, but my guess is size and maturity.

Thanks Arthur, getting too old for these slow bloomers...
