    Default Odontocidium Margaret Holm 'Alpine'

    Odm. Margaret Holm 'Alpine' is very easy to grow and bloom. It needs medium to low light, around 1k-2k footcandles to bloom. It you give it enough light to bloom, you may see tiny brown or black dots on the leaves. This is normal. This plant would grow well in the home in an eastern or southern window. To ensure blooming, this plant likes to have a temp drop at night of around 10 degrees. The flowers on ours are about 2.5 inches and are very long lasting. It generally blooms for us in the spring and summer, but is in bloom now too. Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Those are really fun to look at! Are they fragrant? How big is the plant?

    The plant is in a 6 or 8 inch pot. I have never noticed any fragrance. They are truly long lasting blooms and do put on a nice show. Thanks for looking.

    It's beautiful...have you found that the colors or markings are different now compared to when it blooms in warmer weather?

    Thanks Pavel.

    Ron: I am sure that they would be different, but I have not paid that much attention. I have noticed differences in flower that are red like linda Isler. They are red-brown in one season and really-red in the other. I would guess that this guy might do a bit of that too, but it would only be a guess.

    Mine likes to bloom in the fall! Usually around October/Novemeber. A great plant though!
