This plant doesn't seem to be too interested in new growths while it is in flower. It is now just starting a growth or two. Should make twenty five or more new ones over the summer if it continues the way it did last year. But the growths on the left seem to bloom together and the ones on the right do as well (not at the same time) so it seems that , for this one anyway, that it doesn't seem to matter when the growths start they mature more or less at the same time in the spring. I have a seedling that I bought last fall that has done nothing until this month. It is now growing roots and two new growths. My mature plant seems to bloom here (in Alberta, Canada) now every year at this time and then it grows rapidly for two or three months...then...well things slow down until next spring. But things may be different in "orchid heaven' where seasonal swings are not as severe as they are here. I donít know.
