    yes it is very pretty.I first sawthis crossed with Rhynchostele bictoniensis and liked those flowers
    Thank you, Murray!
    When I first saw this, I was wondering what a hybrid with Rhyncostele bicontiensis would look like. It sounds fabulous. Probably productive, also (?).

    If I remember correctly (it has been about 5 years),the plant that I saw of the cross was in a 4 inch pot,spikes were about 12 inches in length with about 10 blooms per spike,small flowers about 1/2 inch across and bright orange.

    I currently have one of this cross trying to flower now ,two spikes per bulb - flowers as described above,spikes are very wirery and may not need stacking as they stopped growing and now growing from nodes below.It is a plant that does seem to enjoy temps around the 25-30 degree C during the day ,winter I would say dont go below 12degree C.

    It sounds wonderful. I hope you'll post a pic when it blooms!
