Hello Mike and Bea. Long time no see or hear from you but as these terrible times pass perhaps we can meet soon after.
Was so glad to read your email and see the pics of one of my offspring.
She looks good and healthy as far as I can see, you’re doing a great job, and color of plant is a perfect green. It is a happy plant. You will be happy to know not a thing is wrong with having one pseudo bulb bloom ahead of the other. The second sheaf is soon to follow and should produce the same size flowers. This seems to be the norm with her and I too have had blooms come without a sheaf. Just a note and this pertains to most of my plants. If a sheaf appears on a younger or smaller pseudobulb I pinch it off, I know ouch, to give more energy to the mother plant.
If I can manage to send pics of my Nancy Off with this note you will see almost an exact duplicate of your plant. She also is fragrant and is sitting currently in my kitchen where we spend most of our time to enjoy her. The first set of flowers have been out for about 2 weeks.
Also, I’m sure, along with others in the club we would like to hear of other issues you may have with some other plants. We can all help each other along the way.
Just a note to the club’s secretary. I’m answering on Joe’s site and would love to get my name and email on your list.
