    Connie, you are right. Becky, Jimisox and I are fortunate to have several orchid grower/breeder greenhouses in our area. After reading your comment, I checked online and no Zygo's. It is a beautiful fragrant orchid. So, my friends, if the orchid is there when I get back to the store, I will bag it. (Becky may see me at the IOS.) Joe

    Hi Joe,

    There's a fairly good chance the plant is Zygopetalum Blue Blazes, although there are several quite similar ones. The shape, color & patterning of the lip are all really good matches, as are the tepals. Unfortunately, there seem to be very few photos of these on the web. OrchidWiz shows a few--if it were possible for me to e-mail you one of the photos from it, I'd be happy to do so, but I don't believe the program has that option. Others that look close are Zygo Redvale, Zygo Blue Banks & Zygo New Era. Again, though, the few photos on the web didn't look nearly as close to your photos as the OrchidWiz photos.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    You're most welcome. Did you buy the plant? Zygos are among the most fragrant of the orchids.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Default Zygopetalum

    Well, it was still there this morning, so it was meant to be and here it is. The blossom is purple/violet like this, not bluish as it looks on my screen. The orchid is healthy, except that potting medium is probably shot. The roots look very good. The plant is 24" tall and the pot is 3 1/4" tall. Nice fragrance too.

    It is a Zygo..but which one is impossible to tell. Most of them look alike to me. Zygos have my favorite fragrance of all the orchids.

    Thanks, guys. I did a Google image search over lunch and found pictures labeled Zygo. Piranoo x Titanic and Zygo. B.G.White ‘Stonehurst’ that look very close. Although similar to Zygopetalum maculatum, mine has got to be a hybrid. I realize that it is nearly impossible to find out for sure. Still, I really like everything about it. Joe

    Zygo's are very easy to grow as long as you keep them bright, watered and not to hot. They do fine inside. Do not give them any sort of rest and it should bloom for you twice a year.

    Thanks, Stephen. I have it here at work and am working on acclimating it to an east window.
