This Renanthera citrina have been blooming 3 days already. I have 3 different species of this one in my garden but it seem just have this one bloom.
Wow! Stunning display. Love it!
And what a lovely species it is: love the fact that his so many beauty spots
A very uncommon beauty - such a welcome departure from the usual red and orange associated with renanthera.This is the first time I have seen this species and I must say that it has been quite a while since I have felt such excitement at seeing an orchid!
I can see great potential for it as breeding stock with other vandaceous orchids. I hope that I will be able to see a hybrid of it within my lifetime.
Great photography as usual, CX. This orchid is definitely TOP on my wish-list. Thanks a million for sharing.
There have been made already hybrids with this species. Search in google for Renantanda Paul Gripp, a very nice hybrid.
@catttan: How easy to send a plant to you? If it not too difficult I can send this one for you. PM your address to me I will try.
A lovely and small Vietnmeses species described over 10 years ago. Thank you for the photos.
How tall was your plant when it first time bloomed? I have a seedling and it is about 3" tall.
@tom: it started first bloom about 12cm tall.
Very hard to come by and one of my top faves. Love it.
