Vandachostylis Georgia Peach x Neofinetia falcata
The first parent is the cross of Vandachostylis Lou Sneary x Christensoniana vietnamica. While the cross name indicates mainly pink and peach shades (as the first photo shows), whites, greens and soft lilac-blues also emerged. Quite varied results! The Neofinetia in this new offering was a pink blush type(see second image), so we expect many of the seedlings to blooms in shades of pink and mauve. However, due to the species parentage a range of other shades are also likely to occur. We do know they will be compact, they will be easy to grow, and they are sure to be fragrant.
Growing Suggestions: Best suited from intermediate to warm conditions like most members of the Vanda alliance. Plants will reach approximately 10-12 inches across when mature, and have multiple growths or 'fans' per plant. These should be grown in hanging baskets for best results, as they will have long aerial roots. If grown in pots, always use a well-draining open media. High humidity with frequent mistings are needed, and plants should be fertilized every third or fourth watering year round.
We have a small batch of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots. Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately 2 years or less.
These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. Because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.
