Bllra. Smile Eri


It started blooming, so now I sit here and wait for it to turn purple... ... ... ... ... ... Is it done yet?

It's still white, but slightly darker since I turned out the lights in the greenhouse.

It changes color???
It does indeed. It is supposed to anyway. Before it wilts, the flowers are supposed to develop neon purple fringe, like this...



I will keep you informed of the progress.

I have another plant that does this too. My Bllra Tropic Splendor 'Golden Gate' AM/AOS blooms with brown spots, but over time, they turn bright purple. I believe this is one of the plants that parented the Smile Eri, but I could be wrong.

I am such a newbie, I call it my B-l-l-r-a. Can someone smarter than me educate us?

Thanks Heather

Also Orchid Digest had a multi part article (went on for 2 years) on intergenerics.
