Niiiice Darlene! I'd like to try to grow besseae again, but it seems they're just not happy in my gh. I dunno why...so
frustrating.I’ve bloomed 3 forms in my apartment. Only d’allessandroi can survive my summer temps in Chicago. Heartbreaking to raise a seedling up to bloom only to watch it melt when the temperature hits 85F. I’ll parrot back what I’ve been told in here: every Fahrenheit degree above 79F exponentiates the likelihood of sudden doom. I’m so sorry for your loss. If you can keep the temps below 80F in your greenhouse at all times….
The typical one is 'Red' x 'Zephyrus Mega' from Orchid Inn. I purchased it as a seedling. The flavum is from @tomkalina; 'Fox Valley Gold' HCC/AOS x selfLiking both. Tell us about parents and source…. Please. ;-)
