Phaius primary hybrid
The parents are tankervilleae and schlechteri
Not fragrance, the fragrance gene from tankervilleae are sadly not included
I love the nun's orchids. They'll be coming out in the nurseries here in a couple months. I usually miss them around here when they are in bloom. One of these days...
very nice! I have tankervilleae but have yet to bloom it. Andrea can you give me any cultural tips? Please!
my is potted in flowersoil ,you can take compost,too.
When itīs growing,much watering (ever moistly)and fertilizing with mineral dung.(Itīs named blue corn here,I donīt know what`s in your country)
Itīs a very hungry orchid
In late autumn a little bit drier,but not dry out completly.
In Summer warm and halfshade ,Winter bright light and 18-20 ° C. Never under 15 ° C , not eihter at night .Itīs near my antilope Dendros.They never under 18 °C.
When the spike comes ,more watering.
I have tankervilleae and it flowers every year but someone told me if the cultrure is good they will put up two or more spikes per bulb, I would like to see that.
thank you Andrea
I'm sorry it isn't fragrant, but that is a beautiful cross.
Oh, it is beautiful even without fragrance.
Nice lip- the color is so intense!
