    Default Burrageara Nelly Isler

    I also got me this one yesterday. I did the same as with the Colmanara and repotted it immediately after getting home. This one did have the sphagnum ball between the roots. I took away as much as I could, but I'm sure not all of it. I hope she doesn't mind me stirring in between her roots and the second and third spike will bloom as well.

    Really cool nice new stuff, I wondering how long the flowers may last after you already disturbing the roots.

    I'll let you know. Today, they don't look different from yesterday.

    They are so beautiful , had 1 for years , how long the flowers last depends on conditions.Repotted mine into s/h whilst in flower & it didn't miss a beat.
    So yours should be fine.

    I got a Burr. Steven Isler, very similar, but more orange, esp. on the lip. I didn't repot it right away and almost lost it. Turns out all of the back bulbs were damaged by having it stuffed (potted) in a slightly larger pot and sphagnum moss crammed in the top. It was very wet when I got it, I took out the moss and got it in the air more, but I missed that it was so damaged. I wouldn't wait to repot anything that questionable next time! It started to lose leaves and I pulled it out - the back end had started to mold. I cut it down to the one healthy p-bulb, which has about 1" of roots and treated with fungicide. It's now sitting in slightly damp sphagnum moss - it does have 3 buds starting to grow on the front side, so I figure if I can keep it from rotting or getting too dry, it will recover. I hope so, I really like the flowers!
