Tolumnia Red Berry spike progress

Tolumnia Red Berry

     This orchid started its spike on December 5th. In general, my tolumnias have taken about two months to bloom after first starting a spike.  This one seems to be on the same schedule, and will probably be opening its first flowers in another week or so.  

     The spike is only 6" tall--half the height of the spike this orchid had when I purchased it.  This is probably because this tolumnia doesn't have very many roots.  The dry period over the holidays likely didn't help either.  I expect that the smaller spike will also have fewer flowers.
