A Hybrid and more species

April 18, 2004

Slc. Lulu “Hot Pink”

Left: Masdevalia Teunifolia, also known as the Coconut orchid, because its fragrance is just like coconut. On the right is Cattleya Gaskelliana Color

I always thought this planst was a Tricoglottis, but I can’t find it in my books. On the left you can see how it gros from the center of rhe hanging leaf, onthe right a flower byitslef. This plant is finnicky, I have had it for over ten years, this is only the second flowering ever and the best, lost of bunches like those above, flowers are less than half an inch in size. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know.
