    Default Guaritonia Why not 'Round About' x self

    Here is one very beautiful Guaritonia, a selfing of the AM/AOS clone Why not Round About. It is a very small plant with just 4 pseudobulbs, I got it flowering with 2 flowers in November, and it already has been flowering on this gorgeous spike since early March and another spike is forming. The flowers are already a bit out of prime, but my Mom could not flower it earlier. There is a very fascinating glow almost an aura about the flowers when in bright sunlight. Really a wonderful plant, highly recommend it to everyone.

    You're right, Amey - though I'm generally not a mini-catt fan, this one does have a certain glow about to - and great appeal! Nice photographs!

    Thanks Roy, I think so too. I checked Orchidwiz a few days back, and one hybrid especially caught my eye, it is why not x B. nodosa, the flowers are to die for.

    Beautiful little orchid! Why Not is a very popular plant here in South Florida. When they get large they can stay in bloom for a long time if the psuedobulbs don't all bloom at once. Mine has been in bloom for more than three months and still has flowers on it. I agree that it's a great little orchid. Your's is very pretty.
