I purchased this beautiful primary spectabile (x johnsoniae) hybrid from H&R booth in 2018 as their demo plant. I gave it as a present to my OB (orchid buddy) Stan as he loves these types.

It didn’t bloom since then until he gave it a cool dry winter rest. And voila! It threw two spikes with gorgeous porcelain white twisted flowers with black maroon striping. NS = 10 cm x 7 cm

Well done Stan!

Below is when I bought it:

The size of each flower is awesome too - aside from the very nice shapes and patterns and colour contrast. Very nice indeed.
It is one of Roy’s best and he didn’t really want to sell. But I’m pretty convincing at times lol.

How long is considered a cool winter rest & under what conditions?

Makes me wonder what my Joyce Kelly x spectabile seedlings will look like in the future. Great photo!

Be interesting to see if this double dose of spectabile will resort back to looking like the original species with very twisted yellow flowers and mahogany veining.

Be interesting if the aureum form of spectabile was used.
