    Default Yam. Queen Adelia Kiilani

    Oh, the addiction. I swore off buying any more orchids but I just found this as a bag baby at the Local boxstore and looked it up. It's beautiful. It has Blc. Orange Nuggest X Yam. Sammie Evans parentage. Does anyone have experience, or better yet a picture of this plant's foliage? Can I hang it on a mount? These days, only my mounts are staying away from the slugs!

    Chris, You could give the slugs a bowl of beer to help keep them away from the 'chids.

    Geepers, I just checked this on Orchidwiz and it sure has a lot of different genera in its make up.

    I can't see why you couldn't mount it considering all the species that make up this hybrid are epiphytic.

    good luck with it and look forward to seeing it in flower.
