Description 

This new strain of the awesome species Phal. lueddemanniana originates from the breeding of two extraordinary clones—the award winning 'Red Star' AM/AOS and the tetraploid 'Prince' 4N, line bred by Mr. Yang Yang of Prince Orchids.

 Phal. lueddemanniana ‘Red Star’ AM/AOS has created many AOS award-winning progeny in both the USA and Taiwan. Here it is teamed up with the ‘Prince’ 4N clone which has amazing flower count for tetraploid form and striking pattern. Long-lasting flowers have heavy substance, intensely fragrant, and bloom spring to summer. We expect many amazing off-spring from this sibling cross. Robust, husky plants are excellent for under light growing. Highly scented too! This species is very heat resistant and insect resistant, as its leaves are too thick for mites to attack.

 Phal. lueddemanniana is native to the Philippines, where it occurs at an elevation of 88 – 200 feet (27 – 61 m) in a hot environment with plenty of rainfall year round and low levels of light. It is a small to medium sized, hot growing, epiphyte. The bright, yellow-green leaves are 6 – 12 inches (15 – 30 cm) long. The flowers are 2 – 2.5 inches (5 – 6 cm) wide, intensely fragrant, waxy, thick and fleshy, and last about 2 months. This species has 3 to 5 flowers and blooms in the spring through summer. Phal. lueddemanniana has a habit of making keiki (babies) on the inflorescence and forming multiple spikes that remain green and rebloom for several years, so it is best not to cut the inflorescence unless it is brown and dry. Leave keiki on the inflorescence until the roots are about 3 inches long, at which time it can be potted or mounted. Plants are quite tolerant of heat, if high humidity and strong air movement are provided. This orchid does well in a pot or it can be mounted (with more frequent water as it dries faster). We have found that they can tolerate cooler night time temperature (kept drier and with air movement). Can be grown on a windowsill or under lights. A “must have” for Phal species collector and for lovers of fragrant orchids. Highly recommended.
