    Default Brassavola Little Stars

    Ok, ok...I know this is laughable!

    When you see photos of this plant in bloom, they're usually specimen plants covered with hundreds of blooms. Well. If anyone wants to step up and give me one, I'd take it with a smile. Until then, I work with what I've got.

    This is a primary cross between B. nodosa x B. subulifolia. I got this plant this summer and this is my first blooming. It's pretty, you don't need a magnifying glass to see the flower, and it smells lovely citrusy late in the day. And it's a special flower, cause it's the only one!

    Although the name does suggest I should try for more next time...

    Really makes you realize why there were so many, um, sunsual suggestions made about orchids in Victorian times.

    Way cool, McHappyToSeeIt! I just won Diane's B. Little Stars on orchidbids. Looking forward to seeing it rebloom one day, even with one bloom. Congrats on yours!

    Thanks, all!

    I'm trying to figure this guy out. I know he wants to dry out between waterings, but I think in an open spahg basket in my culture, that's a lot more watering then he's been getting.

    I'll repot when I can. Still, the bloom is a gift! I'll get him there.

    He is cute, if solitary!

    The won I sold to Tmai is in sphag and a basket, I think that would be the way for you to go as you like to have things in sphag.
