    FLOWER?!

    And finally, a side view of the flower.

    I know that 'strong lighting tends to induce early flowering in
    D.intermidiate' (as quoted from Jalan Kayu), but how early is 'early'?
    Is it, say, normal for a D.intermidiate to flower in these conditions (you know, high humidity, strong lighting (72Watt) and singaporean wheather and environment?
    Its not even two months old...

    Is the D.intermidiate desperate to pass down its genes to the next generation, or what? Or maybe it was because I fed it too much...and now its trying to get rid of excess energy by flowering (and forming seed...yippee! At last I can get hold of some D.intermidiate seed (which is not obtained from other people )

    Noooo...why doesn't the actual picture show up on the screen? It worked last time...
    The image seems a little blurred...must be out of focus...should I put a magnifying glass in front of the lens, or what, because every time I focus on the flower, I can't focus on the plant itself, and vice versa. Is this supposed to be true with cameras?

    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    It looks like a flower all right. The D.intermedia I got from guqin or Jalan Kayu (can't tell cos I potted them in the same pot) is flowering as well although it is very small. Size is about well, the length of a thumb (its diameter)? In contrast, my D.intermedia flowers only when it is huge: when its diameter is about the length of one's middle finger. I suspect the two are different species of D.intermedias. If flowering is a sign of maturity, then the small intermedia probably isn't getting any larger, which seems to suggest that mine is probably a larger version of D.intermedia. To further bolster this belief, it formed what I thought were winter resting buds last Dec/Jan, and its seeds don't germinate as readily as a tropical seed ought to in our hot weather! Maybe it's a "Big Audrey" variant of D.intermedia!

    By the way Jason, if u want to get focus on close-up objects with ur cam which presumably does not have very close-up macro features, u can tru placing a magnifying glass in front of the cam lens and adjusting the distance according until u get focus. It's crude, but it works and u don't have to get expensive close-up lenses!
