Simply enviable! My U. gibba continues to bloom, in spite fo fall temps and declinng photoperiod... just not as much as the middle of summer.
that U. longifolia spike is nothing short of amazing. What are your growing conditions for it? Do you do anything special to trigger a blossom?

Maybe cooler nights are affecting these guys as well. The recent blooms seem to be a bit more blue/purple

This is another pot of the same clone. So not the same clump that is blooming. However, i suspect that the conditions that favor blooming (max or min temperatures) are still going on for me. But these past few years the weather has been wonky. All summer it was 70ish in the day and 50's at night. Same as spring and fall. We had a few days recently that the overnight went down to the high 40s. But back up again. Doesn't quite feel like winter has arrive yet on the mountain......
