    Cool C. Iwanagara Appleblossom

    Well, after my moaning that I hadn't gone to a nursery this weekend and therefore did not have any new plants, we had to go buy a new pot for a cactus, and as if by magic I found this little beauty...

    If anyone has any knowledge of specific requirements for this hybrid, please let me know.

    Yes, I did buy it and then wonder if it will like living with me afterwards!

    Oh, it is lovely! Treat it with lots of bright light and feed it once a week. Let it dry out between watering and it should bloom and grow well for you!

    Cheers,

    Very pretty! I had my eye on one online last week but thankfully it sold out pretty fast . It was listed together with Catts so I should imagine similar conditions, pretty much like Bruce already said.

    This is one of my favorite orchids Kerry. Mine is just now coming into bloom, but it was incredible last year--just went and went, and the fragrance is lovely. The flowers lasted about two months last year.
