this is the second blooming for viridiflavum. they sulked for sometime after i divided the plant a couple years back. however the joy was short lived as they suffer the same fate previously and this time even worst. the buds never had a chance to bloom, the spike were broken and the buds were partially gnawed by some creatures .
was able to save one bloom by putting the broken spike end submerged under water. the other bud didn't make it. however i manage to save a pollen !
