Default Ansellia africana v. nilotica

One of a number of different forms I have of this species. Nicely
fragrant, too.

Lemon pudding with the zest left in, Tennis!

This one is lovely Tennis. Just how big is your plant & where did you get
it?
Cheers Wendy

Thanks, the pbs are about 8" and leaves another 10" or so. My ansellias
stay relatively short in high light. This one I got as a division from a
plant originally from the local conservatory where I repot.

Hi Tennis

Lovely. I have one plant of this species which flowers intermittently. How
do you grow yours?

Cheers

John

Loosely potted in a large CHC/#4 sponge rock mix, full sun during the
summer outdoors and watered as a cattleya, which for me means a little
on the dry side. I think they naturally get a drier winter as I don't
water often enough in the growrooms, where they sit directly under a
400W MH. I usually get a small blooming in the mid-winter, Dec-Jan, and
a fuller blooming in the summer, sometimes lasting from June all the way
through August.

Thanks Tennis.

Sounds like I need to give them a bit more light.

Cheers
