Brassadas are nice though dont u think....very nice but too cool growing to stand any hope under my care
Absolutley brilliant colour, and I also like the feathery flower. I too have never come accross the Ada. before, and if it won't grow for my friend in Trinidad it sure won't grow for me.
Congrats, good growing
i think this used to be a brassia, and it lends the cooler growing genes to allow me to grow hybrids bred from it without a greenhouse at all. it and its close relatives have taken brassias and miltassias and allowed them to thrive in normal 'room temp' conditions as well as extend their temp range from cool to warm growing. the vibrant orange is usually lost though, at least in primary hybrids. i'd really like a big brassia with that orange!!!!!!!!!! i bet this is amazing as a mature specimen plant though. what a shock of color.
WOW - that orchid is fiery red! I love it.
