I bought this Cycnodes last October & expected it to start to lose its leaves soon after but it didn't seem in any rush.
Just as I was about to start reducing the watering I noticed a flower nodes starting to sprout along the bulb so maintained the watering.
But now I've noticed what looks like new roots developing so I'm thinking they're keiki.......but so many, 7 possibly 8 (both sides of the bulb) & 1 from the base :o

If they are all keiki, any suggestions about keeping them attached or removing them from their mother.

Hi Sharon,

I only had one of these, 'Jem' so don't have a lot of experience with them but as far as I know, these need a good cold, dry spell to initiate flowering and they do drop all their leaves through this period.
Yours hasn't dropped its leaves so can only guess that it didn't get this cold, dry spell so this has affected its flowering and it's gone into a vegatative growth stage instead?

Like any kei-kei's, I would allow them to get to a reasonable size with a good root system before even thinking of removing and potting them on.

But its still great to see all that growth, its a smashing plant with a great scent.

Steve

OK Steve, I knew about the dry period but didn't realise they needed a cold spell too.
My other Catasetum & Cycnodes lost all their leaves it was just this one that seemed to be in no rush to lose leaves & have a rest period.

I was really looking forward to seeing the flowers........oh well. I'll know better next time ;)


Many thanks for your time.

Hi Sharon,

Let's see if some-one with a bit more experience than I had chips in.

I know that I got involved about its culture on the old Forum and the general concensus was that it required a cool/cold dry spell that I even considered sticking it in a cool fridge for a while :o :oops:

I've had a quick "Google" about it today but none of the results put any emphasis or mention about coolness, just the dryness.

Steve

Drastic & desperate measures......the lengths we go too for an orchid to flower. I'll be considering the same thing ;) :crazy:
