    Cool Rhynchocentrum Ladda Gold

    This plant is a regular bloomer, and one spike at a time is it's usual habit. Once fully bloomed it gets placed on the bar because this tiny thing has a wonderful perfume. On a slightly breezy day it fills the back porch with a scent somewhat like a man's cologne.

    The Asctm parent seems very dominant for shape in so many of these primary intergenerics. I like the way the colour flushes out here. One to look out for I think !.

    Beautiful color and I love the fragrance of that one. Take good care of it, Connie. Mine Ladda Gold is much larger and has 6 flower spikes on it right now. Each year as it gets bigger it has more spikes. I think it's an exceptional cross except for the fact that mine only blooms once a year.

    That would be nice...mine may not be so generous since it blooms more often. I recently moved it to a fern pot and it is taking off now. Hopefully it will do multiple spikes some day...

    Yeah, I ride around out back with it on my lap somedays for the scent. And the color, you can see this little guy from across the porch. You will enjoy growing them, they are very forgiving.
