    Talking Promenaea Chameleon

    Here is a cool little Promenaea hybrid that I bought yesterday. It has one flower open now but about 20 buds!

    Promenaea Chameleon (labeled Cameleon for some reason, I don't know if it is supposed to be spelled like the lizard's name or not) according to what I can find online is a hybrid of

    Promenaea Limelight x Promenaea guttata, and I am working on finding out the species that make up Limelight, (it seems to be tricky since one of the species tha tmakes it has a defunct name that is no longer "valid" but is the most commonly label used)

    I will absolutely post more pics once more flowers open!

    Thanks for looking at my cool new orchid!!!

    Beautiful. I have one Promenaea and it just bloomed too.

    Here is your answer to the question about limelight:
    Promenaea Limelight (Promenaea ovatiloba x Promenaea stapelioides)

    Cheers,
