This was a fragrant one that I kept indoors. NOtice I used the past tense. It had since gone the way of UAT (Use and Throw). :cool: Anyone here has successfully rebloomed a Zygo?

Hi, and to the experts,

I got a couple of these from Song.

http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u403/Jim_Yung/20150323_213538-1%201_zpsqar3ohds.jpg

According to Uncle Song, it's one of the zygopetalum hybrids that can be re-bloomed in Singapore.
Anyone has any experience and success re-blooming zygopetalum?

I keep them in my bedroom so they get cooler temperature (around 23 - 24oC) at night when the aircon is turned on. But day time temperature will go up to 31-32.
There are 2 new shoots after the flowers wilted, and they grow rapidly. About 2 inch tall now but no sign of spike.
Leaves are doing fine, no yellowing no spotting and bulbs are fattening up after the bloom gone.

Please help.

Thanks,
Jim

Not to belittle Song, some of the plants they swear can never be bloomed in Singapore. Best to get the name of the plant from him and Google on the spot before buying.

That sounds not good :(/>
I got 3 different types of zygo (None zygonisia) from there.
New shoots are growing close to 3 inch and getting fatter by now but still no sign of spike.
I'll give it a try for another shooting season, if they end with no spike, I'll give them away.
