    Default Pleione Orinoco - terrestrial orchid

    Pleione Orinoco (P.Tongariro x P.Eiger) multiplies very fast compared to the other Pleiones I've had. I finally bloomed one, but I already murdered my collection of them. Thanks for looking. They are supposed to get a cool winter rest but I forgot this year, but it bloomed anyway

    Cute! It seems happy enough, even without the rest.
