Default did I mention?

I finally got a Bulb wedlandii to bloom after 9-10 years? Must be something
to this watering/feeding thing. Only bloomed for me once before, with only
one flower (iirc). This time there's 3.

I'll get a pic for abpo tomorrow (when its light outside, *G*)

I'd like to see that. I have one, also for probably around ten years,
also never blooms. Anyone have one which blooms more readily and if so,
any tips?

I had an orchid called wendlandii. Genus not known - well, I don't
remember. In about ten years it never bloomed so I gave it to someone
else. Now it produces flowers every year! It is in a cold damp
wash-room.

I wonder if that might not be it, too! I turned off the heater in teh gh
this winter, so everything got real cold - well not *that* cold, nothing
below 50F even during the freeze we had.

I can't remember the orchid he was referring to, probably
Den. Aggregatum, but one of the guys at Orchid Trail was
saying "They won't bloom if they're always happy with their conditions.
Make them a little unhappy after they've been happy a while and they
bloom."

I wonder if the same applies.
