    Default Lc Rojo now Sophranthe Rojo

    I bought the plant last May. It's a good size orchids in 5" pot with 10 pbulbs, but I didn't find any old spikes. So this is the first bloom from the plant. I wish I had more than single spike with 3 buds, but I am really happy about the color. Maybe it will produce more spikes next year.

    That is beautiful! I updated the thread title since the name of this orchid changed. I looked it up earlier today for another thread and still had the note pad open on my desktop. LOL. Anyway the new name including the parents is: Sophranthe Rojo (Guarianthe aurantiaca x Sophronitis milleri)

    Cheers,
    BD

    Thank you, BD! I knew the name changed, but I could only spell Lc. I need to copy/paste the name to update my spreadsheet

    No worries. If you ever have a question about a name, I own a copy of OrchiWiz and will be happy to look it up for you - time allowing

    A beauty! And, yes, you can see the (Guarianthe) aurantiaca in its coloring, as well as the influence of the (Sophronites) milleri. As an aside, I think of all the tricks taxonomists have played on us, moving milleri to Sophronites from Laelia was especially cruel!

    Cheers,
    Rob
