My Pamianthe peruviana is in bloom, and this year has four flowers on 
one scape.  The sad thing this year is that the anthers look very 
strange.  The have split, but look dry and lacking in pollen.  This has 
never happened before.  The temperatures at night have been colder than 
usual (for this region) the past six weeks or so with frost every night, 
but I can't think of anything else that is different.  Does anyone have 
any ideas?  A picture from this year can be seen on the blog, plus one 
from a previous year showing the normal anthers.
