    Default Will work for orchid, my new Sarcochilus Hartmanii

    Since I've been out of work and tired of being at home I volunteered to help this lady re-pot her orchids. And this is what she gave me today......It's potted on a 6" wooden basket. I couldn't figure out the entire name on the label so I'd appreciate it if you guys can tell me what it is. I think it's 'Drayton' but not sure since I don't know much about Sarcos.

    Thanks for looking

    Great plant. The name, Sarc. hartmannii ' Drayton ' could well be it. The 'Drayton' was a variety name used by a very large nursery here in Australia ( not going now tho ). They were in Toowoomba, Queensland... Florafest Nursery. The plant would have had to be imported or as a Selfing of the original plant or a crossing with possibly Sarc fitzgeraldii and brought into the USA in flask form. Its not fully a hartmannii shape.

    That was a very nice way to re-pay you for helping re-pot. I love the crystaline texture of the white part of the flower on the top picture. Lucky you! Betty
