    Default Brsa. Memoria Bert Field

    This is a primary hybrid between Ada aurantiaca a bright orange species related to the spider orchids x Brassia verrucosa. The genus is Brassada.

    Diane posted pics not too long ago when hers was in bloom, but I had to jump through so many hoops before a certain vendor would send me one in spike, that I figured it's earned its own thread!

    Thanks, all!

    The color intensified dramatically as the flowers matured. I wonder if aurantiaca does that, similar to Bl. Richard Mueller hybrids.

    It opened more a greenish yellow, but I kept showing it pictures of Diane's urging, "Do this, do this!" And it obeyed!!! That its nearest neighbor took the long walk to the salad shooter really snapped the color up in no time...

    Hi, McTami!

    The largest flower is, as always, the first to open. It's 5" top to bottom. The spike is 16". It's a small plant, but I have a Brassia verrocusa - one of the parents - that's massive and grows like a weed, so I'm not worried! I just love the orange - very unusual in a spider. You need the Ada for that.
