A fellow Odont. grower in California sent this one to me last year. This is the second time it's bloomed.

Wow, that is beautiful!

I've always wondered how to pronounce that genus. I assume vile-steek-ara, am I correct?

I love it. I had seen a picture of this one on the forum before and fell in love with it. I promptly ordered one and patiently????? waited for it to bloom. What a dissapointment. It is not Vuyl Aloha Passion. The shape is different, the color is different and it has many dark spots.

Yours makes me envy you and your beautiful plant. I'm afraid to order another one for fear it will not be the correct plant.

As Marilyn said, most odont hybrids last around 2 months. Specifically, last year Aloha Passion first opened on Feb. 9 and the last flower faded on May 1. It bloomed about 2 weeks earlier this year.
