    Default Restrepia sanguinea 'Walter' HCC/AOS


    For a Restrepia, this is big and showy - blooms are about 1 1/2" tall. It blooms off and on all year. I grow it in a small clay pot that's about 2/3 full of styrofoam, with the top third sphagnum moss.

    Very nice Duane, and thanks for the culture notes also. Someday I will try them. Do they like it warm, intermediate or cool?

    Very nice Duane. I appreciate the info on what you grow this orchid plant in. Do the roots remain shallow or do they go down into the styrofoam?

    Cheers,
    BD
