Brassavola perrinii

Brassavola perrinii - Flower photo by Richard LindbergBrassavola perrinii - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI found this plant at the SCOS plant sale table. Species:check, don't have:check, not too expensive:check, dividable:check.

Brassavola (B) contains 18 species which grow in all the tropical lowlands of the New World. They are fragrant, mostly at night with a citrus fragrance.

Brassavola perrinii grows in Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil above 6000 feet. It is fragrant, cool to warm growing and blooms in spring and summer.

I will mount the two pieces on cork in the next couple of days.
