DS-Sultan (Pavel Enikeev)

Postby strepcrazy » Fri Jun 27, 2014 4:38 am

Age of plant you are reporting on- About 1 1/2 years.
Growing medium-Jiffy seed starting mix with a little extra perlite added.
Pot size-4"
Growing conditions-I grew this one for a year in natural light and several months now under t-5's on a lighted stand.
Fertilizer-I use everything from orchid fertilizer to old VF11 and violet fert. Whatever is on hand.

Standard Leaves/Rosette:
Leaf length-12 inches or 30.5 cm.
Leaf width-3 inches or 8 cm.
Leaf characteristics- Leaves grow fairly strait with slightly wavy edges.
Leaf thickness- Average
Leaf flexibility- Average
Leaf color-Green
Total Plant size- leaf lengths: This plant grows standard size for me. It has grown a bit larger with the light stand versus the north window.
Best grown as- I grow this plant as 1 to 2 rosettes.

Peduncle length- 5 inches (13 cm) average
Peduncle strength- Average
Flower per peduncle-Average is 2.
Flower size- Medium 2 3/4 inches or 7 cm.
Flower shape- Fully open, double, sometimes petals get stuck or "bites it's lip".
Flower edging- wavy
Bloom power-Moderate to good bloomer. Seems to always have flowers. Flowers a bit more for me on the light stand but always flowered in northern window exposure well.
Fragrant-Yes, fairly strong fragrance all hours of the day.
Are blooms sticktite or do they fall off easily-Flowers stay on very well.
Average time blooms last- At least a month. Very long lasting blooms.
Do blossoms change with temperature conditions-N/A
Color changer (opens one color and ages to another)-Yes. This one opens pale pink with almost purple webbing and over the next few days the webbing turns to a rich pink and the flower deepens color to a nice rose pink.
