    Cool Blooms on both Wrigleyii sections...

    The last month I have really seen the results of my summer of spraying and sweating. I split this plant shortly after it was bought two years ago. Both halves are now in bloom...it makes for a nice display when you first go in the greenhouse.

    Such happy plants! The roots, the pale leaves and plump bulbs, the perfect shape of the flowers! They are obviously well cared for and they respond in the most graceful way

    Could this be a cross of L anceps with C skinneri? (Really looks like their baby.) Anyone?

    Igor it is a cross of Guarianthe bowringiana and L anceps

    Stunning cross Connie! Originally registred in 1899. BTW, only one "i" at the end. Wrigleyi

    Both parents are well represented in this old classic. (Guarianthe bowringiana x Laelia anceps)

    Very nice.
