Yellow flowers with some brown spots. This one blooms twice a year, without fuss. I like how it looks like exploding firecrackers. This time around, it gave two spikes, despite the fact that it badly needs to be repotted.
wow; i really like this one!Olya
Thanks! it's got a faint, greenish scent, which I forgot to mention, but you have to put your nose real close!
I don't know how I missed seeing this one! Beautiful cheerful flowers! Exploding firecrackers is exactly right!
I have to get this, is it hard to grow?? Ultra cool!!
I love it!!! Such a bright color, too!
Such pretty blooms...the petals are so much more substantial than I see on most Brassia hybrids. I bet with the Ada influence, these grow intermediate and medium light.
Nice job and twice a year blooming--a winner! (Most brassia hybrids that I know of only bloom once a year.)
Hi, sorry it took so long to respond. I've been kinda ignoring my computer (I call it internet fatigue).
Jane, it's very easy to grow: just bright indirect light and a general regiment of benign neglect seems to work for it! LOL It is root bound, the media must be half rotten at the bottom, and it gets watered weekly (which sometimes is not enough, as the pleated leaves will attest). South window in winter, but since it's under a roof edge, the light is strong in winter than in fall and spring as the sun rises higher in the day. In winter, the room temp ranges from 60-65F, with some humidity when I remember to refill and run the lil humidifier I have.
Still, it keeps on trucking despite me!
Clint, yes, it does have a nice substance to the flowers. At first, I was unimpressed by it: I had hoped for a more orangey tone to the blooms, but it has become more handsome with the years.
Beautiful. This is one for the wish list!!!
