Bollopetalum Midnight Blue

Bollopetalum Midnight Blue - Flower photo by Richard LindbergBollopetalum Midnight Blue - Flower photo by Richard LindbergBollopetalum (Blptm)is a hybrid made up of Bollea violacea x (Zygopetelum Blackii x Zygopetelum mackayi). It needs a lot of light but otherwise seems easy to grow and the flowers are long lasting.

I have two of these. I got a plant in December of 2007 and divided it when I re-potted. This division has grown quite a bit. I am glad I have the photo that I took back then so I can see just how much it has changed.
