Warm Growing Hybrid Trio
When we are creating new hybrids, we especially like to aim for warmth tolerant crosses that will love our southern growing conditions. Here are three seed grown crosses that are perfect for just that! These plants will do great in a range of temperatures from winter lows of 55° to a balmy summertime 90°. They will need bright, indirect light year round so whether you grow outside, in a greenhouse or under a covered growing area on your porch these will be very happy.
(This collection does not qualify for promo codes or other discounts).
All three plants are well established in 2" mesh pots, and will not need larger containers until at least this summer or possibly next. (We do not recommend repotting until then).
We will send one each of the following crosses:
10204 Cycatonia Newberry Pink Butterflies (Ctna. Capri 'Lea' AM/AOS x Encyclia tampensis alba) - Photo shown courtesy of David DeSanti. Very compact growing plants with rigid, upright foliage. Sprays of small flowers in shades of pink appear in warmer months.
9987 Lc. Jungle Elf ‘Carmela’ x Cattleya Mark Jones ‘Newberry’- You can expect semi-compact to dwarf sized plants with spotted yellow blooms similar to the photo shown. The intensity of the freckles with vary but all should be colorful and unique.
10348 Blc. Green Goddess 'Golden Delight' x Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall Beta' 4N- Our tetraploid species crossed onto a stunning chartreuse/green with bold red lip markings. Slender upright bifoliates.
Unless otherwise stated, please understand that bloom photos show mature sized plants not what those offered currently look like.
