This is a discussion on Vuyl. Linda Isler 'Red' within the Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & Intergenerics IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Beautiful red, I really like these bright colors, they make the darker months so much ...
Beautiful red, I really like these bright colors, they make the darker months so much better!!!
i love that, but i think mine looked nicer.....typical me =D
i love how for the most part the bloom is that intense red, similar to the cardinal vine.
My one was given to me out of the blue at our societies 50th jubilee luncheon by the countries top onc. alliance grower, and it flowered for months, but unfortunatly, (a) i didnt get a picture, and (b) i left it in the sun
here are some pics of its current state...be warned. viewer discretion is advised.
Photos contain disterbing images of orchid cruelty.
i think its dead.....
We owe a lot to Jakob Isler - such a wonderful series of ( mostly) oncidium inter-generic crosses...think of Nelly Isler, Hansueli Isler, Stefan Isler, among maybe twenty five more...although there have been no more this century ( apart from a phalaenopsis, and I don't count florists phallys as orchids...)
And of course we owe to the meristemmers who make them available to us.
Your plant is one that hasn't crossed my radar ... when it does I shall swoop on it.
Beautiful red Vuyl. Pity we can't grow them here. Too hot for them.Learnt my lesson the hard way by trying to grow Cambria 'Plush' and killing it in the process.
After all, I was born and bred in a cold climate ( UK) and I love being in the tropics. If I can do it, why can't my orchids ? Unfortunately they can't speak to tell me - or perhaps fortunately - they would probably call me a silly old *********.
