    Default Sedirea japonica

    In the older books this is an Aerides. Then "they" said, oh no it isn't, so what shall we call it ? Someone must have been a crossword addict , because what they came up with was an anagram - Sedirea. So its a monotypic genus ; only one in the genus. Get it, you've got the lot. Something to boast about ? If your audience is credulous, yes...
    Grows well in straight moss. I'm hoping for 12 flowers this year - buds still developing, about 8 definite so far.... I'm also hoping for a new growth at the side, to start to make a clump. I didn't know that was possible until I visited a nursery and got shown into the back room - not normally open to visitors and saw their "mother plant" which was a clump of half a dozen growths, six spikes... the result of growing it well for years and years and years. I'm growing mine well now ( I took advice ! ) but this is only the second year of doing that.
    I'm an optimist - of course - are there any orchid growers who are not ? So I'm hoping.

    Wonderful blooms. I will be getting this one as soon as I can get back to the local nursery. They had them last time I was there, but I didn't pick it up and it has bugged me ever since.

    IOSPE says...This small monopodial epiphytic genus with 2 species is native from China, Japan and Korea . So I too have learnt something - there is another species , which I have never eve heard of before, which looks quite pretty - one for my wish list !

    Amen to that! thats a double hit to the wishlist! i found a nursery who sells the japonica, so i ordered one, at the stately sum of 250NZD! mum and dad were SHOCKED i would spend so much of my savings on one plant...mind you, it is the parent plant for most of their little ones which the nursery gets its keikeis off, so its big!
