Bollopetalum Midnight Blue in bloom

Bollopetalum Midnight Blue - Photo by Richard LindbergBollopetalum (Blptm) Midnight Blue is the cross Bollea violacea x (Zygopetelum Blackii x Zygopetelum mackayi)

I got this plant about a year and a half ago in a group of plants from an orchid friend who was downsizing. It bloomed the first spring and is in bloom again and it seems hardy.

At the time, I simply repotted and tucked it away because of the general overcrowding. Now that I have moved some plants to the Sonoma greenhouse I can pay better attention to placement, particularly light requirements.
