does it really work?
I wouldn't know about Neps, but it certainly works to stimulate flowering in Bromeliads (including pineapples).Originally Posted by [b
The proviso is that the plant has to be sexually mature for it to flower. It may not be quite at that stage yet, even if it is really big. If it is producing uppers, then it is ready to flower.

a rajah in flower can be seen here:

It belongs to Johannes Marabini und reached this stage in about 10 years from a 2 cm seedling.
Nice images dominic I'd love to wander through that GH! But I only saw a small rajah on the 3rd page, no flowers.
Ah yes now I see! I was expecting to see a huge plant with a flower spike, not just the flower (plus I can't read the text to let on what I'm looking at).
Any idea about the size of the flowering plant - how large is each leaf now? Is the plant climbing? If so, it must increase it's growth rate at some point rather than one every 2 months or so. Even if it's climbing those nodes still look very compact.
Ok, here's a shot of my highland tank aftre doing all the cuttings, it looks like so much room afterwards! The rajah is the dominant plant in there currently.
off topic but oh well I though you might like to see anyway,
This is one of my tiniest highland orchids,
I think it's either a Restrepia (or some form of Pleurothallis). These flowers are about 1/16th of an inch and the leaves an inch at the oldest/largest. Sometimes it's covered with these little blooms.
Hey Swords, what size pot is your rajah in? I'm just trying to get a grasp on the size of your plant.
Hey Swords! Good to see pics of your tanks again! I was wondering the other day if you still had them. I kinda missed those "jungle" shots of all your plants.
