Tolumnia Genting Orange: June 4
Here is a series of photographs showing the maturation of the Tolumnia Genting Orange buds. The spike was very small when I received the plant in April, no more than 2 weeks old. The first flowers opened on May 29, setting the spike maturation time at about 9 weeks. Since I've not yet had the opportunity to see these flower in person, I'll save the descriptions until when I get back home. It does seem as if the flowers open yellow, and acquire an orange hue as they age. In the meantime, here is a series of photos depicting the growth of the flower spike.
