Description 

A selfing (i.e., self pollination) of a named clone of this terrestrial species found in in the Cape Verde Islands, much of tropical Africa and part of the Arabian Peninsula. These plants have conical pseudobulbs with very robust, thick, fleshy, white roots. They don’t seem to be fussy about the medium, growing equally well in bark or a denser mix. The inflorescence can be up to 3 feet tall, carrying as many as 45 fragrant flowers in late summer. Flowers are showy and waxy, with a pinkish-purple lip, whitish base and spur and purplish-brown sepals and petals. The plants have a distinct growing season and rest period. They store water over the dry resting period not only in their pseudobulbs but also in their fleshy roots. Water copiously and fertilize regularly when the plants are growing. Leaves turn yellow and drop during autumn. At this time stop watering altogether until plants resume growth in February or March. Remember to keep it dry over winter and do not disturb its roots too much. As these plants are seedlings, each plant is unique and may differ from the photo.

 PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a seedling population (not a mericlone, which produces exact duplicates), the picture is for illustration purposes only. No two plants will be the same from this cross, and they will flower in a range of possibilities coming from the two parents.
