This one comes from Fox Valley Orchids and has been a good performer.
Love that deep crimson color.
Yay bessseae hybrids!
Very nice. This is my Jason Fischer originally from
This Jason Fischer is beautiful, I had a Jason Fischer from OZ MDM 'Fire Engine' x bessae'Wings' that had misshaped blooms year after year . Perhaps , a ploidy problem.
wow, your Jason Fischer bloom looks big , what is the natural spread?
Well this is a small division so this is a smallish flower. The parent division does bloom fairly large but I don't recall the exact measurements.
Any special conditions for this beauty? I have one, but it seems
to just poke along...not dying and not blooming. I'm starting to
think it's a zombie Phrag. Mine didn't come from Tom...perhaps
that's the problem.
They like a lot of water & humidity abax. Much more so that paphs. I grow mine S/H and heavily mist daily and water weekly but they could probably take more water than that. Intermediate temperatures. The color improves as the temperature gets cooler. Also go very light on the fertilizer. I grow mine fairly bright, near cattleya conditions.
Thank you, e-spice. Bright light and humidity I've got in my gh.
Intermediate temps. only in winter. This summer has been a
killer for temps.
