Laelia anceps 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS x self
Laelia anceps is a hardy growing species that hails from regions of Mexico up through southern California. While young plants will need to be kept in temperature controlled growing conditions, mature plants will grow in a wide range of conditions. Very, bright indirect light will be needed for the best blooms and sturdy foliage. Not suggested for indoor or windowsill collections because of light requirements and mature size. Great for warm growing climates and outdoor collectors.
The seedlings from this awarded parent will have smooth dark lavender blooms and crystalline texture.
