    Default Brassia Mem. Bert Fields

    This guy blooms well, flowers are about half the size of my Bras. Rex, but still striking. Flower color is more vibrant orange than photo shows. No fragrance on this one.

    Hi Diane,

    That's actually a Brassada (Brsa). It's a primary cross between a Brassia verrucosa and an Ada aurantiaca (similar to Brassias, and bright orange).

    I just ordered one from that place you bought my phil from, and it arrived today. When I placed the order on-line, I wanted one is spike, but the e-mail confirm listed it as "mature" and not "in spike." So I called the next morning and asked them to change it. I also asked if they could choose one just in spike, so there'd be less risk of damage during shipping.

    Anyway, it just arrived this noon and it's only a mature plant. Not in spike. So, somewhat annoyed, I called back. I think I got the same girl (and people skills aren't her forte.) She looked up the order and said it was for a mature plant. I told her the story and she then said that there was no note that I called, therefore they couldn't do anything about it.

    Nice, eh? I asked to speak with a manager, and am still waiting for a call back.

    So, your Bert Field is absolutely lovely, but Bert is a bit of a sore issue for me at the moment!

    Diane--that's gorgeous! If you want to teach it to do silly orchid tricks, it can PM my new Brassia. :-)

    Julie--did they charge you for a spiking plant?

    Diane,
    That is a pretty one! One of brassia hybrids that I don't have. I have been thinking about getting it like forever.

    Julie, sorry for the situation you are in. It looks like you have been on a orchid shopping spree? What gave? So what else is brewing and growing at your place? The monster lycaste, the masdie in a jar, the phil, the tahoma, the ...Hehehheehe
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Ada aurantiaca would not be inspike where you are at this time of year.
    For me they are just about to start spiking.
