I caught these guys flowering today.
I love the coloration on this species, especially the leaves.

Hey, I was wondering what conditions you have them in? I grew two cyclo in different conditions (One in high and one in relative humidity). The smaller of the two which had a burned out crown actually grew back and flowered under the high though the other never has. Curiously it went dormant late and is the only dormant one I have right now :lol:

I'm just curious if there is some kind of variable that helps trigger it.

I have them growing in a peat:perlite mix in a peat pot.
They sit in my basement under LEDs from first frost frost to Spring. (May June-ish)
LEDs are synced with local sunrise/sunset.
They sit outside in a shallow water tray from Spring until first frost.
I fill water tray to 1/4 inch deep and refill it when it is empty.
