    Default Bc Nanipuakea

    It's pretty obvious what this little beauty's heritage is! So lovely and white with the beautiful purple spotting. The picture is not the best, but I'm still a little groggy from time change, so hands not too steady. This amazing little guy has 30+ growths in a 4" square pot, and 2 more sheaths that may yet spike... No Fragrance.

    Beautiful! This plant has such elegant blooms and foliage! Well grown!

    This morning I just repotted our Nanipuakea. It too was in a 4" pot, but the roots were all over everywhere. Now it is in a round 6" pot and hopefully it will take the hint and bring on the blooms!

    Cheers!

    That's lovely Diane! over 30 growths? Sounds like the plant might be straining. Might need to be divided...

    Ah...while the B. nodosa is obvious, the other parent explains such elegance. It's primary hybrid: C. Hardyana = (C. dowiana x C. warscewiczii.)

    Very nice!

    WOW!!! Beautiful pristine white and a lip with such beautiful marking... I needs me to get one of these!

    With the fragrance Diane, could it be a night time thing? with nodosa smelling mainly at night... maybe that's when it will do it...

    Yeah, Tim-O...

    I'm hot on the trail of one, as well...since it seems Diane wants to keep all 30+ growths to herself!

    Sniff, sniff.

    Beautiful nodosa hybrid! The white color makes it elegant!
