Cross is Rl. (digbyana × glauca).
Had one of these and sold it. Regretted it and got a division back.
Tough and easy to grow, huge flower (NS 14.5 cm), strong citrus fragrance after dark. Really like the color as well. When this is big enough to put out several flowers it'll be really spectacular. Plus, what better time of year for blooms than mid-winter?
Obtained at Fantasy Orchids, Louisville, Colorado in 2023.
