    Default yamadara Queen Adelia "Kiilani" in bloom



    This orchid was soooooooo small when I bought it two & a half yrs. ago. But, it was worth the wait...Enjoy...Betty

    CORRECTION! This orchid is an epicattleya Volcano Trick "Orange Fire" Thanks, Michael...It goes to show that the box store labels cannot be trusted! Betty

    Not sure of everything Jason, but I do know that it has epidendrum stamfordianum in it...It is a very small orchid plant; not fragrant. Only stands about eight or ten inches tall. Later...Betty

    This is indeed one of the E. stamfordianum hybrids, but not Yamadaara Queen Adelia (Blc. Orange Nuggett x Yamadaara Sammie Evans). (I'm using traditional genera for convenience.) The only Epidendrum/Encyclia in Queen Adelia is Encyclia alata. If you google this, you will find a "traditional" looking "Epicatt" hybrid, gold/orange with a red spot on the lip. Your plant is probably Elc. Volcano Trick.

    Great colors Betty and that white and red throat make this hybrid very distinct. Glad it decided to reward you for your TLC. AL

    Very very beautiful and vibrant blooms, I agree with Michael, there must be a name tag exchange, this looks like Epc. Volcano trick.
