A beautiful intergeneric of Promenaea stapelioides x Zygopetalum Kiwi Dusk. Colour is almost black purple tepals with a deep fuschia velvety purple lip.

Many were awarded after but I suspect they are all the same cultivars as these were sold widely as mericlones.

The dark velvety color reminds me of good French merlot.

No scent is a plus for me. My challenge would be keeping the leaves from spotting. Any recommendations?

They need lots of water and good air circulation. It’s a fine balance of the two lol.

Fantastic - especially the Coca Cola *TM* colour. The deep purple at the centre and the patchy maroon/burgandy colour lip is all very nice.
