Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe fourth plant I got last Saturday was this great Cirrhopetalum hybrid. It had two spikes and the and one of these is now open.

The cross is Cirrhopetalum longissimum x Cirrhopetalum Rothschildianum. They are both fragrant, not in a good way.

There are seven pseudobulbs with two leads. Now that I have taken the flower picture I am going cut off the spikes and divide it into three pieces. I will mount all three on fairly large pieces of cork bark.

Since two of these will eventually be sold or traded, I will remember to test fit the mounts in the shipping box BEFORE attaching the plant.
