    Default Bc Little Mermaid 'Janet'

    This is the very first orchid I received in Hawaii. It was given to me by a neighbor but really didn't know what the name was. He thought it was called Little Mermaid 'Janet' and we looked it up. Looks very similar but we're not sure.

    It blooms several times a year and it grows like a weed. I've given several pots away and I still have about a dozen more. Whatever it is, it really likes the environment here.

    I think I can put it in the ground and it would go crazy... LOL!

    It's a beauty. I still don't have a single cattleya.

    Little Janet has similar flowers but the lip is not so frilly, from the Brassavola nodosa influence. I think this is a hybrid of Little Janet.
