Miserable humpty doo.

by Chingz » Sun Feb 12, 2017 12:13 pm

I actually never let my burmanniis flowering. Always cut them down, like, every 2 weeks they sprouted stalks.
This one time I decided to let my very healthy Humpty doo to flower because I want to have another doo. Or several.....
After 2 month, it looked really miserable.
It did flowered with great success.
Now it gets smaller and smaller.
And the weather was really terrible also. Always cloudy.
Yesterday I decided to cut down the extremely long stalk..
Hopefuly this can help. I try feeding it too but rain washed it away.
I did have my burmanniis flowered and sowing the seeds too. I hope humpty doos aren't too fragile and can recover soon.

I've sown some of the seeds on LFSM around last week and today I have a seedling..
Hope next week more seedlings sprouted.

Give it some food and light, it should be back in no-time.

If you keep the plant well-fed, it can flower as much as it wants and still live for a long time. One of my plants is nearing 2 years old now and it's flowered so many times the leaves are actually having trouble unfurling properly because of all the flower stalk stubs in the way.

I have three burmanii....I fed two regularly and forgot to feed the third. After they flowered, the third one turned a greenish white color, and promptly died after flowering. The other two are putting out their third and second stalks. So FEED EM! XD

Yeah. Will do the feeding. If the rain would just stop for 2 days.
Its rainy season in my country. And the air was cooler. Sun was almost always cloud-covered...
Thanks for the spirit!!!!
