    Default Bardendrum Nanboh Pixy 'Cherry Moon'

    I just got this monster. It may be that 'Cherry Moon' is a giant clone, but if not, Louis, then your babies are going to grow up to be cowboys.

    The grower said they started blooming at around 8" tall. They are currently right around 28", or 45" including the inflorescence. The grower also told me to cut off the (finished) spike right below where it had been blooming to encourage branching, and that by doing this repeatedly it would bloom 4x per year.

    Bardendrums are new to me too. Are they a genus or an intergeneric?

    Bardendrum is an manmade genus containing Epidendrum and Barkeria. Nanboh Pixy is the only grex I've ever seen.

    RVO is selling this grex, but I different clone, to the best of my knowledge. My comment to Louis above is regarding RVO's description of Nanboh Pixy as being a smallish compact grower:

    Either RVO's are a smaller clone, or they're just too young to tell, in which case Louis, you might want to change the description . . .
    I don't know though. This is new territory for me. As I said, this is the only Bardendrum grex I've heard of, and this clone is the only one I've ever seen in person.

    Bard. Nanboh Pixy =
    -------Bard. Terusan=
    ----------%25--Barkeria skinneri
    ----------%25--Epidendrum haematanthum
    %50--Barkeria scandens

    Bark. scandens is a warm grower, and seems to be dominant in flower shape. The Barkeria skinneri grandparent seems to have granted the long inflorescence to my clone, at least. I haven't found much information about the Epidendrum grandparent, but I assume it's a large plant.

    The roots are very much Barkeria roots: very large thick Cattleya-type roots. I plan on giving it what I understand to be Barkeria's preference: Water 1 to 3 times per week, but drying between, kind of like Vanda prefer. But again, I'm just guessing. The grower said he waters them twice a week, but who knows what his conditions are like otherwise . . .

    I had an Epi species before and it grow like weeds in my growing condition, tough plant, under shade or under full sun. Even "mild" frost doesn't bother it much. There was a time when I think that it would be nice to grow it on a trellis and use it as a hedge....lol

    I have seen another Bardendrum pic on the net. It looked like Namboh Pixy but the petals are more slender and pointy and the name is Bardendrum Desert Rose.
    Whether this is another Namboh Pixy or not, I don't know.

    Well, I tracked down a pic of that Bard. Desert Rose, and it sure looks the same as the Bard. Nanboh Pixy.

    I continue to be suspicious that mine isn't a Nanboh Pixy, and this development doesn't help. (The plant was marked only "Bard. 'Cherry Moon', and I assumed it was Bard. Nanboh Pixy 'Cherry Moon', since there is an awarded (HCC 77pt) clone of Nanboh Pixy named 'Cherry Moon') Looks like I'm going to have to give the grower a call and see what's up.

    To confuse matters further, Carmela Orchids is selling a "Bard. Nambo Pixy 'Cherry Moon'" [sic], which it lists with a different parentage: Bark. Cyclotella x Bard. Terusan.

    Grr. Well, I'll silently fume about all this. On the bright side, it's a cheery happy plant!

    Our clone is named 'Volcano Queen', and it appears that I'm going to have to update our description given Sue's findings. Alas, our petite little "princesses" look like they're going to mature into Arkansas "hawgs"....
