    Red face Renanstylis Azimah x Renanthera Bangkok Flame

    Initially I didn't want to post pictures of this orchid as I had just bought it about 3 weeks ago at an orchid show after it had travelled thru 2 orchid shows. Most of the buds had dried up and blasted.But I decided to post the pictures after BD posted pics of his Rhy gigantea and this cross had Rhy gigantea in its bloodline.

    Renanthera hybrids have a reputation of being difficult to grow and bloom. Moreover they grow quite big and takes forever to reach blooming size. I have a Ren Nancy Chandler( a keiki from a friend) that is now 3ft tall after 5 years, and still no sign of it blooming.

    This cross is Rnst Azimah (Ren Nancy Chandler x Rhy gigantea) x Ren Bangkok Flame. The Renanthera lineage runs the whole gamut of renantheras including storeii, coccinea,imschootiana and monachica.However, the Rhy gigantea seems to impart the very desirable qualities to it - ease of growth, free flowering from a small size ,non-fading flowers, plus the branching flower spike habit of the renantheras. There were 3 plants for sale with varying degrees of red - one a 'loud' red, another a rather subdued pinkish red and this one, an in-between. Of course I wish I had the money to buy all three!

    Pic # 1-3 Flowers of Rnt Azimah x Ren Bangkok Flame

    Pic # 4 The plant 15in tall with 12 pairs of leaves showing remnants of old spike and the current one; 8 bloomings altogether but strangely all on one side of the plant only.

    Well, I am glad you posted it. I love how vivid the red color is in this orchid's blooms. Your photos are superb too, Yew Sung. Thanks for sharing it. It is hard to imagine it is related to the Rhy gigantea. The Renanthera has greatly influenced the blooms. I wish I owned one of these. So pretty!

    Cheers,
    BD

    This orchid's blooms really are a "stand out' red. I very much like Renanthera's. I was wondering about the eight blooms. Were these approximately yearly or more or less often? I noticed one leaf growth between each old spike, it seems like it is on a agenda or schedule. Am I wrong or off base ? I do not have any Renanthera's, vandas, or others quite like this in growth habit. Any why, I think it was neat if they do grow this way! AL

    I love this genera , and buy all I see offered, which is not a great range here in UK . They flower easily in my conditions, oiften twice a year ; perhaps they get more stressed ythan yours Yew Sung ? . also they flower when fairly small . I have only a couple of hybrids , one of which is Nancy Chandler, but its only a few inches ( say 4 ) high as yet , and it will be interesting to see if , in my conditions it follows the others. or whether it too will need to be grown until more than 3 ft tall. ( None of my plants is 3 ft tall ! )
