Great shots Hans - beautiful Pleione - as I don't have any autumn flowering P's myself - this helps to fill the gap until next February or so.
Thanks

Hmmmmmm.... didn't even know there were Autumn flowering ones.  Do they flower at the end of their growing season, or are they summer deciduous and then flower with new growth in autumn (and keep leaves through winter) similarly to the spring types?
Cheers.

Paul,
autumn, winter and spring flowering Pleiones have the same growth. The autumn flowering show their flowers at the end of the growth and before the dormant saison in winter. I grow alll in the same substrate and there are no great differences in cultivation.

Hans,

Fascinating.  I take it by the pics that they drop their leaves before they flower?  So the flowers are completely naked with the bulbs, the same as the spring ones?  Thanks very much for the info.  Definitely not something I had heard of before.
Cheers.
