    Default Vascostylis Pine Rivers " Blue"

    Just back from Sicily a few hours ago, so popped into the greenhouse to see what it looked like ( terrible.. but that's another story). Picked out a few things to snap and show you ; this is one.
    Commonly sold in UK under the name Pine River Blue , but as stated above appears to be correct. here seen in a four inch basket, about 10 flowers and five or six buds . Colour very difficult get right in a digital image for ll the usual reasons, but not far out here.

    Wow! I am really jealous. Vascostylis Pine Rivers is one of my favorite orchids. I've been looking for a blue one for over a year now. My Vasco. Pine Rivers 'Fushia' was in bloom continuously for 9 months this year. The gentleman in Austrailia who made the cross says that it usually blooms 6 times a year in the right environment. Congratulations your's is a beautiful color.

    Aer they hard to grow ?

    like most orchids, if they like what you do, they grow like weeds ; if they hate what you do, they die ; if in between (most ! am I being cynical or realistic or what ? - they just mooch along...)
