    Default Bl. Mem. Bernice Foster

    It is a cross of Bl. Richard Mueller by B. cordata. It grows in a pot of Hydroton but not S/H. I keep it in very bright light. It has a heady purfume fragrance.

    I bet I can get a piece off for you Diane. As soon as it is done blooming, I will work on that. It is potted non traditionally but I will see what I can do.

    Definitely looks like I can get a piece off of it for you.

    That's lovely. How long do the blooms last?

    about 5 weeks per flower. There is still one spike that hasn't started blooming and one just finishing. So, with multi spikes the plant can be in bloom for 3 months or so
